some people probably know that Ecuador is quite mountainous, it is impossible
to image or visualize the incredible landscape of this country. Unfortunately
pictures cannot do the mountains of Ecuador justice but it seems like
everywhere we look could be a post card.
2. The Fruit
and raised in the USA, I’m used to organic, fresh fruit being expensive and
hard to find, especially when what you’re looking for is out of season. It’s
the opposite here in Ecuador. While a box of brand name Cornflakes can be
almost four dollars, a huge selection of fresh fruit can be bought almost anywhere.
3. The Seasons (or lack of?)
of Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring, Ecuador’s seasons seemed to be
distinguished as the rainy season and the non-rainy season. And while we’re all
missing Autumn, the rainy season will hopefully still provide an excuse to wear large
sweaters and drink coffee.
house, a pink house, a bright teal house...this is the common view during our daily commute. The beautiful architecture, historical styles and brilliant colors of
Ecuadorian towns still amaze me daily.
