Having just managed to connect to the internet through tethering to my sister-in-law’s iPhone I am a little bit late to the party, but I couldn’t resist this week’s photo challenge when I saw the title. We are staying in Punta Blanca, Ecuador, having travelled to South America for a family wedding and we are […]
