Sick

all seasons in one day 30 °C

We may have spoke a little too soon. While The Sundown Inn is everything I said in the previous post, it is also a little hygienically challenged. This has resulted in a lot of sickness! Its hard to enjoy the sun, surf and Spanish lessons from your bed... which is where I spent a good portion of the last several days. We can't pinpoint the exact cause, but we're pretty sure that the cockroaches running around aren't helping matters much and we're not to sure about the “drinking water” either. Last night, after about five days of feeling terrible, I finally felt good enough to take the seven hour bus to Quito. Just about the time that we bought our tickets, Eric began to feel sick. We tried to change our tickets (with no luck) and checked into a hostel in Canoa (both of us feeling sick just thinking about Sundown Inn. So this is where we are now, Eric feeling awful and still feeling pretty bad myself. We're crossing our fingers Eric will feel good enough to travel before our flight on Thursday, or we might be getting some extra time in Ecuador! After all this, we certainly are missing the comforts of home...

Trust us, you don't want to see pictures of this.

Let me tell you, as your mom having most of your children sick and miserable in a foreign country nowhere near you is a worrisome experience. Stephanie and I are relieved to know that you are now in Quito and feeling better, if not cmpletely recovered. You don't know how relieved I am to know that!?!?!? Well, I'm sure you're relieved as well.

Just about all that's left now is the plane ride home and I can't wait for it to land!

Love you both. I'm glad you were able to have this adventure and like always, I'm happiest about the trip while I'm looking at your pictures at home.
