Park Time

I've seen this park a number of times, and always wanted to live near it, but never did. Until this trip. Now we live 2 min away by car or 15-45 min by foot (depending on if we are going our speed or Natalia speed). We generally take a cab (a whopping $1.00 ride).

They have EVERYTHING at this park. Play structures for the kids. Basketball Courts. Baseball Diamonds. Some guy teaching a mix of Latin Salsa, Shake Your Bootie Hip Hop, and Aerobics. Everything.

Natalia loved the swings and slide. We loved Bootie Guy.

They really have the most beautiful wood in Ecuador. Play structures, houses, closets, chairs, tables are all made out of the same wood. I'm sure it gets old after a while, but I love it. It is rich and dark.

And they have the coolest trees.

It was another HOT day, so we decided to take advantage of the snow-cone cart. They are everywhere and are all the same. This old fashioned ice grinder and colored liquids in reused bottles. They always sprinkle sweetened condensed milk over the top.

Natalia approved.
