|Ecuador was a big part of our life, living their for two years. We lived in Cuenca, high up in the Andes Mountains at approximately 8,400 feet. A UNESCO heritage city, we fell in love with the history and beauty of the area.|
But it was the people that were truly amazing. Warm, welcoming but with a few quirks (at least for us Norte Americanos). Mañana didn't necessarily mean tomorrow, it meant, not today. Events, dinners, parties - it was the norm to be several hours late, often not starting until 10-11pm even though the invitation said 7-8pm.
The children were gorgeous, full of playfulness but still steeped in tradition. The scenery was breathtaking and the climate wonderful. But the fresh fruits and vegetables - we still miss those (and the prices).
And we found humor everywhere, even in a two story department store in a mall. Yes, they were pushing the carts up to the second floor via the escalator.
