Ecuador is calling
Just to ease us back into the food in Ecuador (that kind of sounds like we are leaving NZ real soon - but no announcement yet folks) - we had friends over for rice and beans tonight. Actually we went the "whole hog" with locra de papas first and then sweet empanadas to follow. I made everyone roll their own empanadas (they thought it was for the fun of it when really I can't make them very well myself). Of course we don't have Queso Fresco here so we had to fill them with whatever was available. I'm telling you - marshmellows and chocolate (Moro Gold Bars to be exact) is pretty darn delicious!
I should introduce you to Kelly and Bjorn - they are a cool young couple that have been serving here in Bethlehem Congo for a couple of years but have just moved on to help out the Mount congo - Kelly has just taken up learning Spanish so I am very proud of her taking up the challenge. At least I will have someone to leave my spanish calls with!
