I had been here for a month and I couldnt see guys, I felt so bad...I had been really busy taking my quals and moving my stuff and now it is time to leave Gainesville and start my research in Ecuador, my natal country. But I cant go without tell you that I really have good times with you, I learned a lot about crafts and enjoy it :-), but most important I learned about courage, persistance, respect, friendship, kindness and generosity. You really are going to be in our hearts(my mom, my sister and I). You have a home in Ecuador, come to visit us.
We are planning to start a branch of Minerva Club in Ecuador, my mom is really into it, I will sent pics if we finally make it.
Thanks again for everything

He is the one who took this picture of us, before he dropped my camera and almost broke it (I think is back to life now!).

Once again, we have to say goodbye to some wonderful friends that have been recently joining our group. Three women and a little girl that have filled us all with joy and shared so much with us that we will miss them and hope to see them again (very soon Lisseth) in the future.
We had a little party for them that turned out to be bigger than we expected, lots of kids, another party of nice friends outside and wonderful treats to share. But the best of all, great friends and an emotional farewell. Thanks Claudia, Maria Emilia, Carmen and Lisseth for being the way you are and see you soon!!

Yesterday we had a different type of workshop at Minerva's circle. Pilar taught us how to make meringue cake. Not only she had all the instructions in English and Spanish but she also had a bunch of tricks under her sleeves! We were a nice crowd, hosted by our dear Gladys in her home. We learned how to make meringue and how to put the cake together. It was really amazing! So soft and creamy and light and fluffy mmmmm way to go Pilar! Thank you for being such a great teacher!
Tada! this is how it looked at the end...amazing right?
