Who we are

  1. Henry is retired from a full career at the Inter-American Development Bank and Isabel is an artist-sculptress. We live most of the year in Washington, DC and frequently visit our three adult children (one son in private business in Guatemala, a second in investment banking in London and our daughter, a GYN surgeon at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD) and two granddaughters. We enjoy sailing our boat on the Chesapeake Bay, the beach, hiking and other outdoor activities; visiting museums and art galleries. We are primarily interested in Europe, but are open to almost anywhere. We occasionally vacation with our children.

Quito has many fascinating places to visit in the city and many convenient day trips; and is the perfect base for visits to the Galapagos Islands (daily two-hour flights).
