When real estate, land use & business transactional lawyer Duncan Delano needs a respite from his busy law practice, he grabs his passport. He has traveled extensively in Europe and Southeast Asia, but Latin America holds a special place in his heart. In college, Duncan studied a semester in Ecuador and fell in love with the country and its people. Over the years, he maintained his Spanish language skills and ties with his host family. Now he has shared with his wife the place that is so special to him. They volunteered for four weeks at an Ecuadorian children’s center and stayed with his former host family. Maravilloso!
