A non-stop, but rewarding job

As we start our fourth day, we note that we are tired. Some of this is due to the high altitude (9,800 feet). We are also working more as we have learned the routine and can help more.

Quito, the highest capital city in the world

I worked with the babies again today. Tía Norma has her hands full with ten kids under two years of age. It is a non-stop job. We all have become very fond of the children and appreciated how tasking this job is. We went to our friendly small restaurant again today. The food was excellent. We also made our first attempt at using an ATM.

Glenn and I are having a quiet evening as we prepare for our final day with thank you cards for the tías, a daily journal, and a farewell song. Shereen took a city tour with Richard, a tour guide.

I can’t believe how fast this week has gone. The daycare center was an awesome experience and the people and sites of Quito added more fond memories.
