Elena and Vlad coming knocking on our door. They have found someone else to take care of the dog. We are asked to move out by Thursday.

After breakfast, I take a cab up to Monte Suenos to look at the rooms. They are all beautiful just like photos I’ve seen. Ulices, the groundskeeper, walks me back into town and helps me buy a cell phone. My number in Ecuador is 094548091.

Marika isn’t feeling well. Sarah and I visit with her for a good part of the afternoon.

I decide to have dinner at the Chinese food restaurant. I get my first call. It’s Ginna, who comes and joins Roxanne, Kim and I for dinner. John, who is writing a book on the Tarot, joins us and then Felix does also.

The stars are incredible as I look up in my yard.
