    I have to ask, why Ecuador? What sparked your interest, have you been in the area before. I guess when I think of taking a trip this isnt the first place that comes to mine. I love your pictures and your descriptions, thanks for taking me on this trip with you. You have an amazing talent for writing you know my dear.

      Thanks, Sandi, for the compliment–I enjoy writing–it just comes out when I sit down to type. Why Ecuador? I had read articles about it over the years, especially as a retirement haven. That peaked my interest. As I read more, I found out that it is South America’s most stable and safe country (economy based on the dollar) with astounding natural beauty–Galapagos Islands to Andes to Amazon to Pacific–all in a relatively small package. It is quite inexpensive and feels like the 1950’s in manners and lifestyle. Finally, I looked on the map and saw that it was directly in line with our already planned trip to Peru, so Kathy and I decided, let’s just go, so we added two and a half weeks, and here we are.
