During my trip to our U.S. Consulate in Guayaquil, Ecuador, I took some time after work to stroll the city's boardwalk, called the Malecon, and see the sights.
Guayaquil is actually larger in population than Ecuador's capital city Quito. It's rest near sea level and provides all the amenities that comes with being a coastal city. Great seafood, beautiful waterfront views, and fascinating urban architecture, I look forward to coming back and seeing more of the city.
While I was away for a few days, Lucia had her own adventure. I told her she was going to summer camp, but she knew that translated to a dog kennel. Fortunately, we were put in contact with a great vet who also runs a very nice kennel just outside of Quito. It's run by Dr. Ellen and her husband, who both run a veterinarian clinic called Ecuavet. Over the labor day weekend, I took Lucia to check it out and get use to the surroundings. Upon arrival, she was welcomed warmly by all the current canine residents. So I knew she'd do well while I took my first trip for work.
