By the adobe walls of the front gate. These are the same walls I climbed over three years earlier, part of my great escape to Quito nightclubs. Pictured from left to right: Mark (Roswell, I think, something like that--his parents were missionaries, for a different denomination, in Bonaire: he lived one dormitory over, on the same compound); Colin Snowsell (in a handsome deep v-neck sweater, white t-shirt combo--solid, respect, thumbs up, thank you for not also wearing cargo pants); Michael "Beagle" Miller from Georgia (his parents were C&MA missionaries in Colombia, and he and his older brother Johnny, a big-wheel soccer star, lived on the same floor as me. Johnny and I were roommates for a year. Beagle kept a boa constrictor in the hallway outside our rooms. It was in an elevated cage and a lot of the boys would gather around and watch while the snake ate the little chickadees they fed it.
