A pounding headache that woke me at 4:00 a.m. Tall buildings out my living room window with just a touch of mountain green in the background, filthy hands, a dinner with queso fresco and avocados that are beyond heavenly...and a stack of newly bought second-hand books (thus, the filthy hands). Oh, and llapingachos for lunch.
Yup, I'm in Quito.
Missing my family terribly and just hoping for a productive trip that will make the two weeks feel not quite so long. Not even the best avocados on earth (which these just might be) keep me from missing home and family.
