Right Back At It...

We have been back in beautiful Ecuador for exactly one week. Here are our current stats:

* Mosquito Bites since return: 11
* Days of rain since return: 6
* New types of insects that mistakenly believe they live with us: 4
* Number of life-defying bus rides: 10
* Good news that landed in the Richert household: 1 (but Dave gets to share that one with the rest of the world)
* Number of months until we are back in the states and get to eat real cheese again: 18
* Times I forgot you don't flush toilet paper down the actual toilet in Ecuador: 15
* Times I slipped while mountain biking in the mud trenches Dave calls a trail: 3
* Pirate boats we have ridden in: 1
* Number of rats I have seen squeeze under our outside gate: 1 (but isn't that enough?)'s good to be back.

(Pictures of our trip in the States to be posted soon. We had a wonderful time and I can't wait to tell you all about our adventures!)
