So here is just a little follow-up for those who were confused.
-What are you going to do there? Aaron will work remotely, the kids and I will do what we normally do, which is play, except now we will mostly play with orphans. We will all enjoy sunshine and 75 degrees every day, lots of fresh fruits and veggies, and raising guinea pigs to eat. Just kidding about the puerqueños. We will only eat those in restaurants when you come to visit.
-How long will you be there? Because we don’t have resident visa (yet) we had to buy round trip tickets, so we will be back to Seattle on June 12th. But maybe we will stay longer. It depends on many factors including money, enjoyment, etc.
-Why Ecuador? I lived there in 2004 for 9 months and loved it. I forced Aaron back several times and once to live in 2007-2008 for 6 months. We know Cuenca (and much of the rest of the country) and love it. We have some amazing friends there, and the orphanage program I worked with is there too. I hope to be able to help them out some if they will have me!
-Are you crazy? Probably. But that was apparent long before this decision.
