We have just finished the most incredible two weeks. Elder and Sister Flake and Karen Cordosa, the nurse, arrived on January 13th. Friday January 14th we finished getting things together for the NRT (neonatal resuscitation training) classes. This turned out to be a bigger job than I thought it would be. Once the decisions were made as to who got what and we sorted everything out into the separate areas it had been a long day. Friday evening we all went to Old Town and saw some of the sights, had dinner and then attended a folk dance performance. It was a wonderful evening. Dr. Eric Flake and Dr. and Sister Doucette arrived Friday, about midnight. We again met at the office Saturday morning to review everything that we had done and to wait for the delivery of the last few items we needed. Then we took off and did some sightseeing. We went to Teleférico, a gondola that takes you to high up Pichincha, the volcano overlooking Quito. We had a great view of the city and several of the volcanoes’. Then we went to Mitad del Mundo, the middle of the earth. We only had about 20 minutes here so got the really short tour, but had a great time.
