At 11:45 pm on Friday night, February 13th, I was just getting to bed, when our doorbell rang! Jeff went to answer the door as I got dressed. I heard some music coming from the street, and when I got to the door, I realized that the music was for me and Jeff. It was a “serenata” by the youth of our church, complete with violin solo. They traveled with amplifier, mixer and computer. Our whole neighborhood got a serenade that night. Three songs later I was snug in my bed thinking how nice it was for the youth to take the time to come and sing to us and wish us a happy Valentine’s Day. We were just one of many that were serenaded that night. I suppose this is one of the reasons Loja is considered the arts and music capital of Ecuador.
