This is just a short note to let you (especially those of you who sent comments asking if we were OK....bless you) know we are still alive. Our trip to the Amazon was wonderful (more detail and photos to come later this week) since we had little free time and no internet. Only problem was Mike came down with an even worse cold the night before we had to fly back to Quito. We only had one day in Quito and he slept through it. Then we flew to Manta for 4 days on the beach. His cold got a bit better and Katy caught it. So she is reading and resting and watching Humpback whales breaching far from the shore while Mike is going swimming and walking.
We will be here all day tomorrow and then back to Quito on Tuesday for our last day there. Then it is off to Cuenca on the 1st of August. Even with this issue of nasty colds, we are thoroughly enjoying ourselves in this laid back place.
Oooops!...we did add a couple photos here...just for fun.

This time we are off to Turkey in a small camper van via Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Sicily, Albania, Macedonia and Greece. Our return drive from T... full info
