Some of you may be envisioning our life here in Loja Ecuador in terms of sunshine and palm trees, but the truth of the matter is that we Live in a very urban setting filled with busy streets, traffic and car alarms. Although the climate in Loja is very mild, the fact that we live in a cloud forest means there is a lot of moisture in the air and we have more rainy days than sunny ones. The city is often misty in the morning with general absence of sunshine, sometimes clearing off in the afternoon.
Despite the frequent rain we are enjoying our new cloud forest lifestyle in surprising ways. I never thought I could bundle up in a sweater and socks while eating wonderfully ripe tropical fruits and sip hot tea…but I do!
