El Coca

Family boat trip down the river
Last weekend I went to visit some of my extended Ecuadorian family in El Coca in the Jungle region of Ecuador. 4 of us took an overnight bus up and over the mountains and headed into the jungle. We arrived at 4:30 in the morning, had a quick game of Jenga (which became the game of the whole weekend, with the loser having to wash the plates of the next meal!) 

Wild monkeys in El Coca

It was a great time to visit family and I feel very blessed to feel included in this 

family. We went for a walk into the town, saw the monkeys in the trees,
 ate some worms, had a river trip and swam in the river. We ate lots of yummy food and shared lots of laughs. It was a great time.

Cooking the shellfish and maduros on the BBQ

Improvising...parasole for the rain, dodgey wiring for the lamp whilst cooking the BBQ

Very yummy dinner...
