I had the great opportunity to travel to Ecuador with my family. Ecuador is in the middle of the world and exhibits a complexity of fauna and flora. Also, its weather is very diverse from the warm areas of the coast to the spring like temperatures in the mountains and valleys.
There is also a great amount of craftsmanship from the handmade panama hats (that are really Ecuadorian hats) to leather and wood products. All of them worked beautifully in the hands of artist. Here are some pictures of my trip.
