What?  Does this mean you can skip W and dash to X?

What? Does this mean you can skip W and dash to X? (Photo taken last week during a dress-rehearsal parade!)

Aside from adopting words from other languages, Spanish doesn’t have words that begin with the letter W!  Wifi, Whisky, Wafle (Waffle) illustrate a few of the escapes that took root in the Spanish language.

Here’s a beautiful song by Richard Shindell that my friend Michelle shared with me years ago.  It doesn’t start with W, but it compliments the theme of learning Spanish.

An impromptu parade distracted us from painting last week;  in preparation for Jama’s (Canton)15-year celebration, the town treated us to a dress rehearsal for a much larger parade set for later this week!  Since I have no Spanish words to illustrate the letter W, here’s a sneak peek of the upcoming parade!

The size of the parade surprised me, and I was glad that I switched paintbrush for camera and joined the bystanders!

Do you recognize her from the post, UP?

Ecuador seems to have more parades than any other country I’ve visited;  this week’s parade will surely be a great one, but I will be in the cloudforests of Mindo.  Thankfully the town of Jama was kind enough to give the sneak peek!
