Yesterday I hung around all day because two of my Ecuadorian friends were to stop by but typically cancelled at the last moment.
In January, which I consider a rainy month,.. when we have a beautiful day, we take advantage of it!  Today was one of those days.
Cristina wanted to go for Colombian food at the Moliendo Cafe on Honorato Vasquez.  We jumped on the #13, and part way, Garry and his family sat across from us and we got caught up on their news.  
I always enjoy Moliendo's empanandas for 50c so I was very disappointed that they had none.  I had to have a beef plate instead and it was quite good.  I was surprised that Cristina said that she did not like their arepas.  Next to us was Regina P. and a couple of friends, one a Canadian, later to be joined by Linda C..  It is always good to bump into old friends.
Then we caught the #3 from Calle Larga to get to our bank, from where we walked to Coral and then home.
I then jumped on Buzzer for his daily run and just headed east, enjoying the sun, the views, and fresh air.   While I am still pretty shaky, I really enjoy the freedom of riding Buzzer.  I am just a lot slower and more careful now.
All photos are taken with the little Lumix and one of the best shots of the day, of the Tomebamba west was taken over my head, un-aimed.
I hope you enjoy the photos.  That was the day's excitement.   Cheers, Al
