Growing up in Ecuador

This blog contains a series of short stories that will become my memoirs of growing up in Ecuador during the 1950’s-60’s. 

My family was dirt poor and therefore life was hard most of the time.

Growing up in Galapagos

A series of short stories that highlight growing up in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz, Galapagos Islands.

Imagine no running water, no electricity, chopping wood, carrying water everyday to accomplish most daily tasks.

That was my reality during the 1960’s in Galapagos Islands.

Imagine a memoir of growing up poor in Ecuador

Imagine a poor boy growing up poor in South America, one early morning chance encounter in Galapagos islands and that life changed forever for the better.

That is the one chance in a million that the Hartley’s offered me and it changed my life forever.

That is the story of my life.

More about tumbling around Ecuador

The cities and the backdrops to my life have been like a kaleidscope of dreams yet to be fulfilled. Being adopted by the Hartley’s and growing up in Greenwich, CT made sure that those dreams became a reality.
