Semana Santa is a big deal here, so we´re off from school until after Easter. Today the whole school went in 3 busses to a nearby river valley at much lower elevation and swam in the pools of a hotel. Rosie declared "This is the best school field trip I´ve ever been on! We´ve never gotten to go swimming with school before" I must agree it was very neato, just an hour away and we were in legitimately hot, dry country - it looked like the Rockies, but with bananas growing. The Chota river valley, a bit north of us (our closest approach yet to Colombia. We just brushed the edge of Carchi province, which borders Colombia).
Cheers all. P
