This is more of a "don´t worry, I´m alive" sort of update. My sister was here for the last 10 days, and we had a blast hanging out and participating in all that Quito Holy Week had to offer. I left the morning she left (yesterday) to take a quick trip to Mindo, a village in the rain forest about 2 hours west of here. Emily and I spent 2 crazy, yet relaxing, days hiking, biking, running, butterfly watching, laying in hammocks, eating delicious food, and doing a zip line course. And by zip line course, I mean we soared over the canyons and tree tops of the rain forest by way of a wire cable, harnass, and cabeener hook! For those of you who are not aware, I am severely afraid of heights. I try not to let that get in the way of kick-ass adventures though, and I´m so glad I didn´t pass this one up. It was amazing! I leave in the morning for a 5 day jungle tour. We are headed to the northeast part of the country (bordering Colombia - keep me in your prayers!). I´m a little nervous about the snakes and spiders, but I can´t wait to see the monkeys and pink dolphins! I promise to write again before a month from now :)

Keel, what an amazing adventure you are on!!! I'm sure it was great to have Ali there for a while. I'm off to my own little adventure, Mark and I are heading out today (3/27) to a 4 day trip to Savannah GA where it is in the 70's & 80's (compared to 30's here!)
Be safe!!

Hi Keely,

Last night I went over to your Mom and Dad's and we talked about what to bring for our trip. I am really getting excited. Jono has some tennis shoes that are practically brand new, could someone there use them? Anything else "your kids or families" need? Just 10 days. Love ya, Jill
