To our friends;

Thanks for your emails and messages. Fortunately we are fine and the apartments are well and ready to receive you in Quito. Our prayers are with the people in the coast region, specially in Guayas, Manabi and Esmeraldas which were the most affected provinces.

At this moment the official report confirms 350 deaths and 2068 injuries after a 7,8 scale earthquake happened last saturday around 19:00. There are some missing people too. It’s hard to get by car to the coast region and the only vehicles allowed to pass trough are the emergency ones.

This is a moment to show up our unity as a country to help the most needed people.

Marcelo y familia.
