Here Comes the Sun!

This morning I saw the sun (as in sunrise!).

I'm not sure what it is about Cuenca, but sunrises and sunsets are elusive...partly because we're surrounded by the mountains (southern sierras) and we're so close to the equator (or so I'm told).

Each morning I wake up to take a picture of the sun rising and it is either clouded in a mist of fog or the clouds completely cover it up. This morning at 6:30 AM, my husband nearly pulled me out of bed and handed me the camera and shouted, "Quick, it's here...the sun!" 

True to his words, there were no clouds...no fog...no haze...it was the sun! I broke out in song, "Sun, sun, sun, here it comes..." I'm not sure if I did the Beatles justice by "my" lyrics, but you get the idea. In fact, I got so excited I almost forgot to take the picture of "Mr. Sun" peeping its glorious face and shining its rays into our bedroom window. 

It was a magnificent sight and I'm still not quite over the shock that after six weeks, the sun finally welcomed us to Ecuador. Now, if I can only catch a sunset! 

Until next time..hasta luego!

Ecuador is one of the most beautiful countries of South America. Nothing compares to the landscapes of the Highlands, the lush of the Amazon Rainforest, the exotic Beaches of the Coast and the mystery of the Galapagos Islands.

You're absolutely right! So much to see and do in this small country. We can't wait to go to the Galapagos in November (it's always been a dream of mine!). It's hard to believe we're really here!
