Flag of Ecuador  ,
Monday, January 22, 2007

So it is Monday. Our family and Regina and Inga sat around the lunch table and all of us were exhausted! It was funny as I havenīt really felt that "Its Monday" feeling for a while. I know you are all feeling soooo sorry for me right now. I could hardly think in class today because I was so tired. I donīt know if I actually suffered some heat exhaustion on Sunday or what. (OK I just googled it and I think not. But I am tired and sunburnt!)
Hey our teacher asked us why the Canadian flag has the red bars. We know why the three parts but not why red as opposed to any other colour. Anyone know the answer?
Prices (all in US dollar) here (if you are interested) one adult fare on the city bus .25 (do you think OC transpo could lower the fare to match this?) Gas $1.48 per gallon. Room and three meals $14, internet .90 per hour, slice of pizza and a pop $1.00
Today it feels like my spanish has hit a plateau (and not a high one at that!). I hope that I can get over it and learn more. I understand in class but trying to string together a sentence without looking at my notes and the dictionary is still almost impossible. Andrew is much better at it (as are the children).
We went to see a church the other day in the old town of Quito (the church is called San Fransico). Brett had some very good but difficult questions for me. Why is God important? How long has he existed? How did he come to exist? ect.
Morgan has decided that there are no bus stops here in Quito. He calls them "bus slops" because the bus only slows down and you have to jump off or on (unless there are many people getting on or off or children involved). You can also flag a bus to stop for you anywhere (another good idea for OC transpo).
We are hoping to go to the new teleferico. Google it so you can check it out.
I better go. I hope you are all well.
