I wanted to share some of my memories of when I lived in Ecuador (in 2010). It actually took a long time to chose the ones I like, even though I only lived there for 6 months. I was entirely too poor to take advantage of extensively travelling throughout the country like my fellow English teachers.
CEDEI provided my first EFL job! And it was an amazing experience. I still can’t believe I was there…
I was on a double decker bus when I took this shot. Loved the similarities I found between Ecuador and Thailand.
Uh, yeah, I was in LOVE with the llamas and thrilled to find them on packets of gum too.
Jamie and I in Panama Hats at the Panama Hat Museum of course!
My all-time favorite pic, we were at the Incapirca ruins for the summer solstice.
Helen was utterly amazing when she surprised me with egg musubi before we headed to the ruins. She made Hawaii food and I was sooo happy.
One of the things I miss about Ecuador is the cars. Yes, classic cars in mint condition. This guy was all smiles after I took the pic 🙂
Treats in front of the cathedral, banana chips and that horrid meringue I didn’t dare try. Looked pretty tho’
Ahh, Taylor and Jamie diggin’ on swine in Cañar’s central market.
We were in Biblian and her name is Maria Flora. Just the shortest lady you’ve seen. Gave us some history about the local church.
At Incapirca, these local gals sizing up the dancers, just love the way they look.
In Cañar, and also in Cuenca where I lived, this was a common sight. Mom with baby on back.
Chinese shops were marked by red lanterns. There were some Chinese in Cuenca which I found fascinating. Would like to read/study more about Asians in South Am.
Welcome to Dina’s (also a restaurant) a common place for the teachers to stop by for coffee and snacks.
Flamed torched pig is all the rage…
Miss those flowers, and the architecture and the ice cream, and…
