I have always wanted to visit Ecuador, because that is where my wonderful sister-in-law (mi hermana preferida) is from. Her home town of Guayaquil is the largest in Ecuador, its economic capital, and is quite lovely.
We only spent 12 hours there (and we were sleeping for five of them), but Fernando, our guide took us on a whirlwind tour. We visited the Malecon, Iguana Park, the cathedral, a neighborhood, and a chocolate shop. Unfortunately, it was a Sunday, so the grocery stores were closed, or I would have loaded up on coffee and chocolate. As it was, our group bought out all the chocolate the little shop had in stock!
These pictures are especially for Fanny, who hasn’t been home in a long time, and por mi sobrina y sobrino, Tara and Steve.
