Our neighborhood....

I thought it was time to share some photos of our neighborhood. We live inside a gated mini-community with about nine or ten other families. All are Ecuadorian other than us and our downstairs neighbor, Rebecca, who helped us find and get our apartment. There are 8-10 youngsters that we often see out playing on their bikes, ranging in age from just over one to maybe twelve. Great kids, we enjoy practicing our Spanish with them and our neighbors. Here is the photo of our building with our door on the right and Rebecca's on the left. The two downstairs windows are hers and the two upstairs are ours.

There is a new building being built across from us and it's been educational watching the process. You can see the building in this sunset photo I snapped from our window.

Once outside our gate, we are directly across the street from the Yanuncay river which has a wonderful walking trail. Here are some photos taken from a couple of our walks, more in the SmugMug album.

And here is one view looking up our street towards some of the surrounding mountains.

Welcome to our neighborhood!
