I felt that this being my third and longest trip to Ecuador, I would post a collage of my memories and times to date. First a little about Ecuador, to help those of you geographically hindered.
Ecuador has a total area of 283,561 km2 (109,484 sq mi), including the Galápagos Islands. Of this, 276,841 km2 (106,889 sq mi) is land and 6,720 km2 (2,595 sq mi) water. The Galápagos Islands are sometimes considered part of Oceania,[which would thus make Ecuador a transcontinental country under certain definitions. Ecuador is bigger than Uruguay, Suriname, Guyana and French Guiana in South America.
Ecuador lies between latitudes 2°N and 5°S, bounded on the west by the Pacific Ocean, and has 2,337 km (1,452 mi) of coastline. It has 2,010 km (1,250 mi) of land boundaries, with Colombia in the north (with a 590 km (367 mi) border) and Peru in the east and south (with a 1,420 km (882 mi) border). It is the westernmost country that lies on the equator.
Okay, enough about that. try to imagine British Colombia in Canada, the geography is very similiar, as is the climate, except slightly warmer. Now for some pictures...
Just a few of the wonderful people that have become close friends here in Ecuador. Ecuador is very much a cross cultural mosaic. Because there economy is one of the strongest in South America, and also an up and coming tourist destination, you will find friends here from all over South America and the world.
Just a few random shots to wrap things up!
Cheers, and have a happy hump day!
