Since my Thanksgiving post we enjoyed the rest of our visit with Danny's sister, Shari, and her husband, John. After that we flew back to Quito to address Cal's digestive troubles. We met with a great gastro doctor and we are headed to Santiago tomorrow morning as planned.
Here is a little recap of our visit with Shari and John last week and some photos:
When we all arrived at the Rio Muchacho farm we were welcomed back by lots of familiar faces. Some old friends had moved on to new travels but still happily working at the farm were the core staff and interns. We were bummed though that Kelsey, (one of the interns who we think we’ve convinced to move to Colorado after her time in Ecuador!) was only around for one day that week because she was meeting a friend in Quito. Shari and John got a tour of the farm from an intern named Andrea as well as a wannabe intern named Harper.
Over the next few days Shari and John got to see most of things we did during our 6 weeks at Rio Muchacho. (And also some we didn't. The bees were new and their time at the farm led to lots of excitement.)

Looking back, we had a really nice visit with Shari and John. While we didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving in the traditional sense, we felt thankful to be with family after such a long time away.
