I read a Facebook post about the flood and hail in Loja yesterday. Loja is a 45 minute drive from here and about 2500 feet higher. I watch the YouTube video showing the highlights including making a snowman from the hail. All this while enjoying warmer weather and light rains here.

I eat at Hosteria Vilcabamba before going to Norie & Richards place. We share a whole afternoon of interesting conversation.

I dine with Will talking about Bitcoins and drumming at Sambucha’s.
