Our friends, Myrna and Liz are in Quito for a couple of days.
They're on their way to the Galapagos Islands tomorrow, but
they had time to visit with us at dinner tonight in La Mariscal.
They're Ice friends who have tons of stories between them
about almost everything and anything. Myrna told us about
her trip to Palmer Station in Antarctica in August. Because the
Lawrence M. Gould couldn't dock at the pier, they had to shoot
rockets toward the station with lines tied to them so they could
drag an Zodiac (a small rubber boat) toward the station with
her in it. All of this in the dark and in a snowstorm! We'll
see Myrna and Liz again in Otavalo in about 10 days and then
in early June, we'll be traveling with Liz in Peru.
