Parque El Paraiso - Expat Meet n Greet

What a great day! It started out drizzly, overcast and stayed gray but we didn't mind. We took a taxi to Parque El Paraiso for our impromptu picnic meet 'n greet with other expats. The weather kept some at home but those of us that ventured out really enjoyed ourselves.

We were a diverse group with five of us currently living here, one recently moved, two on their exploratory trip, and four on extended vacations. Home areas ranged from Alaska to Tennessee, California to Vancouver. Oh, and one puppy, Chica, who enjoyed all the attention.

There was an amazing array of potluck food which meant no one went home hungry! We will have to do this again and the park is a perfect spot. The park is gorgeous and now on our must see list for anyone coming to town.

The conversations flowed for hours, various topics encompassing both Ecuador, past lives, future plans and coincidences. Around four we finally wandered off, leaving the gazebo as clean as we found it.

Here are a few photos, you can see the rest in our SmugMug album.
