First, I want to mention that Scott and I both started new jobs about a month ago and are very happy with them so we may postpone our move by a few years. Scott is now a full time employee at Bebe Stores headquarters and I am contracting at Facebook headquarters.
Now, on to the topic of the day - roaming wild in Ecuador. We saw a lot of animals while there and most roamed wherever they wanted. There were pigs, cows, cats, dogs, and horses hanging out in various places without leashes or fences. They did not seem to have any fear of vehicles and barely moved as we drove past them. Here was a horse hanging out in a front yard.
If you read a lot of other blogs about Ecuador, you know that there are also a lot of more exotic animals but we did not go to the locations where we would have seen them. Maybe next time, which will be a week this summer :)
