May 24, 2013 – Quito Ecuador
Today Ecuador celebrated its history of independence (1822) from Spain. A bonus on this full-moon day, crowds gathered to witness the swearing in of Rafael Correa for his third-term as president. My friends Silvana of tinasca.wordpress.com and Bob of www.pirancafe.com are both in the city of Quito for an event-filled weekend!
Tomorrow their attention will wean to a March Against Monsanto. How great it is that the entire world is collectively standing up against the big M and saying, “Go Home! Your genetically-modified seeds are not welcome here!”
In honor of Ecuador’s independence, I’ll leave you with images of some of my favorite places in Ecuador. Enjoy!
