Sunday football day. It still amazes me we can live in Ecuador and watch NFL football like we are in the States. There is something comforting about that.
Chase, his friend Christian, and I walked to Supermaxi to load up on chips, peanuts, “beverages”, and some other food to make our afternoon in front of the TV more enjoyable. The sun was out during our walk and it was hot. Love it!
We passed a church on our way and service was going on. The large, double wide doors were open and the congregation was singing. Everyone I could see inside looked Ecuadorian. What I found unusual was that the song they were singing, with the music playing, was in English. It was a modern worship song I recognized by an American artist. This struck me as odd.
Outside the church in the plaza were three or four food vendors with their carts waiting for the service to end, then sell food to the congregation. One of the vendors was selling chocolate covered strawberries on a stick. (I grabbed this image off the net) I love these! One of the fun things about living in Ecuador.
We made it to Supermaxi and bought our treats, so now we can chill out for the rest of the day. Time to watch the Broncos beat the Falcons. Fingers crossed for undefeated record.
