Two Years in Ecuador

Well folks, another year has past, and I’m still here. For last year’s anniversary I wrote “One Year in Ecuador“, comparing my last year in the States with my first year in my newly adopted country. So now year two has rolled around. Time for some more comparisons.

In the form of… Cory, mi sobrino (a.k.a. My friend Ronny’s dog).

Ronny was one of my first friends in Ecuador. I met him while I was taking my CELTA at Kamala and he was managing the place. He adopted Cory the puppy a few weeks after the course began, so Cory was the Kamala communal pet. Now, 2 years later, Ronny and I are still close friends, and Cory is still making mischief, just on a bigger scale.
Puppies… they grow up so fast, *wipes a tear*, and what a way to see the difference two years makes.

I only hope my inner growth over the last 2 years has been as great and spectacular as Cory’s outer growth!

P.S. I in no way recommend the book you see in my lap, Gone Tomorrow by Lee Child. It may be one of the worst novels I’ve ever read. Steer clear.
