Today all of Ecuador has shut up shop and stayed indoors because they are doing a census. It is a law that you stay inside your house from 7 am - 5 pm so that someone can come around and ask you the questions. Actually they have been very smart and used college kids to do the job - it's their civil duty so they have to pay them! All religious meetings or activities are cancelled so we have a great excuse to take the day off ourselves and veg out! So what have we been doing? Well everyone that knows me understands I have a need to change furniture around occasionally - and I never have time to do it on normal days so our bedroom is having a make over. Mark is cooking us a roast dinner (lunch), Amanda is doing her homework and C & M are busy little beavers too. Of course in between all this work we have found time for a few games of Settlers and maybe later we will watch a movie or two! Yay for the census - will only have to wait 10 years for the next forced day off. I shall look forward to that!
