Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands were great. We were on a tour with G.A.P. Adventures that had us on four of the islands over the course of ten days. We had two days in Quito beforehand, and did a separate tour from Quito to Cuenca and back afterward. More on that later, after I sort through my photos. I think I took about 2000 pictures on the trip … I had two cameras with me, one with two 1GB cards and a 512MB card, the other with a 2GB card and a 1GB card. Lots of pictures to triage.
The bad news is that the day before we flew down, I was informed that my first day back from vacation (Monday the 5th) would be my last day at the job. If they’d let me stay until Tuesday the 13th, that would have marked my 23rd anniversary with the company. Ah, well.
So, I’m looking for work, preferably in the embedded software field (I’m not ready to be a Wal-Mart greeter yet!), and also preferably on the northwest side of Denver. Yesterday’s priority: convincing the cat that she’s not entitled to continual attention, even if I am home all day. Luckily, I have a good resource for resumé cover letters – I wrote about it some time ago.
