Ecuador 2, Poland 0!!!!! This morning all Ecuadorians with whom I spoke thought we'd be doing good if we tied Poland. Otra vez, we underestimate ourselves here. We kicked ass, man, kicked ass! I listen to honking horns as I write this, in a driving rain (outside, not in my house!). I often wonder about this country: How often do we have to succeed before we believe in ourselves? (And often, the same question applies to me: How often do I have to succeed before I believe in myself?) I'm doing good, and so is this country in many ways, ways that we don't understand, a veces, ni mucho menos apreciamos.... Go Ecuador, go me!!!!!!
