Having visitors in Ecuador has been an exciting venture for Dave and I. Tosha and Brandon reminded us of what life was like before we adjusted to the daily occurrence of what we call EcuaExperiences. From being a part of a taxi chase scene straight out of a Bruce Willis film to surviving the bus depot during carnival, the Bentz' witnessed many EcuaE's during their week-long visit.
I dropped to the ground, earning a couple of nice sized bruises along my arms and legs, and was met by two men who were grabbing for my bags. In my panic, I didn't realize at first that they were trying to be helpful and not take advantage of my vulnerable state, I lunged for the bags and just started yelling, "mi esposo, mi esposo!" And who should appear? Dave, looking refreshed and calm. Of course he was calm, he didn't just jump out of a bus window. Not only that, but he was completely oblivious to the experience Tosha, Brandon, and I had just had. When he saw I was shaking and was sporting a couple new bruises and scrapes, he stopped asking questions and just directed us to our new bus.
