We had a very nice and generous breakfast at Posada de Arte, the hotel we spent the night. After breakfast, we went out for some more shopping, and we all met at a cafe for lunch. We continue to share and enjoy each others' company.
After lunch, we loaded up the bus and set out for the long bus ride to Quito.
We visited Casa Gabriel and met Phil and Debbie Douce and the boys who live there. We listened to a life story from a boy named Sydney, who spent much of his time on the streets of Shell. He has had a bumpy road, and it gives us a different perspective of our own difficulties. We bought some crafts, pizza was ordered, and we had a good time there.
We arrived at the airport early, and are waiting to check in for our long flights toward home!
