Ruth and Mother on the BeachWleft early to manage the crowds at the airport which never materialized, so we were able to sit and catch up on emails with our computers. Wifi is gratis at the airport, which is so very sophisticated and convenient. It was entertaining to watch Eric, Maya and I all pull out our laptops and start surfing the web and checking our mail. Maya alternates from her ipod to her computer to a book (she still reads books!).
I am still recovering from the adieus of the last few days. We had two whole weeks to celebrate with each other, and somehow the time whizzed by and it is over. We have wonderful memories of many special moments. I believe that every one of the three or four families felt exactly the same way.
I am not sure what I expected with the few days we have here, but I did not expect this feeling of being disconnected from the eight years we lived in Baltimore. Has our time in Quito so changed us that we cannot return? I will have to see if this feeling persists or if it is just a reflection of having not slept last night.
