We were super lucky to have made friends with a family from Cuenca. We met the wife in the airport in Quito and they have been so kind and generous towards us. This past week, we invited them over for lunch and I made soup that didn’t have enough salt! Our friends adore Maeve just like every other person in Ecuador. Her bottom scoot is so unique and endearing. 

We’ve generally found that the men here in Cuenca are more friendly than the women. I’ve had a harder time making friends than Conor has, which could just be because of me? I don’t know. The woman at church are kind but they aren’t as warm and friendly as the women in Quito. We are hanging on to the friendships we have and working to forge new ones.
