My favorite spot in Ecuador! Manta! I was in Ecuador 8 days. I traveled hundreds of miles, through the Andes and the Pacific coast. The trip was cut short but my goals were accomplished. I met the people, saw the beautiful country and the crops they grow. I saw three of the largest cities and some awesome coastal fishing villages. I stayed in one, Crucita! In Ecuador they produce everything and all decontaminated, no pesticides on the produce or fruits. They have cattle, pigs, chickens and of course seafood!! So not to worry, due to the passing of a dear family member, I feel blessed I accomplished my goals and made it back to be here in KY during this time. Now for a few days of R&R here and then back home to Florida Thursday. I will post pictures later, promise!
