Today is my son Easton’s birthday! He’s 26 today and I love the man he is and continues to become. I also appreciate that hanging around him keeps me young in mind and body. Of course some days I would like to kick his ass as he leaves me in his dust on our runs. I guess I’m going to have to run faster to be able to catch him to do that. 😉
We hit lunch today at Sofy’s, a chic and interesting place on the hill coming out of El Centro onto Solano. Our friends Scott and Colleen told us about this place a while back, and since we got off the bus very close to Sofy’s, we gave it a whirl. I think the almuerzo was $5.50 (in reality cheap, but in Ecuadorian almuerzo world, expensive). But hey, it’s Easton’s birthday… nothing but the best for my son. 😉
After lunch we walked along the Tomebamba river for a bit. Eventually we wandered down to the Broken Bridge Tavern, but if it is where I think it is, the place has closed down. Does anyone know? It opened a couple of months ago and we never made it here until now. Looks like we missed our window.
It’s been a great day in Ecuador. This evening we are settling into Rum and Coke’s and Fabiano’s pizza (delivery), while we get ready to watch reality TV, a cross between WWE Raw and SNL…the last Presidential Debate.
