Our family home

My uncles and aunties like to tell stories of how Cotocollao used to look like. When my grandparents bought this house years ago there was hardly nothing around. They were able to get a large plot of land and my uncle would go down the street to fetch water for the neighborhood. Even when I was a little girl, I remember the bathroom used to be outside.
Since then the town has grown dramatically. Things here are crowded now and we have an indoor bathroom now and running water.
I remember seeing pictures in black and white and seeing what a different world my parents lived in at one time. The house was surrounded by countryside, now the big city has swallowed up the quaint little town.

My dad, husband and my boys wearing the Ecuadorean Soccer team jerseys.
We almost saw a game but we missed it! Maybe next time!

A look at the city from the family home. Things have really changed.
