Merry Christmas from Ecuador
Christmas here is very quiet. Not even any real traffic on the road. One insistent bird that sounds much like a rusty swing set echoes in the background. A few stores, and the bank, were closed this morning.
The rush, the decorating, and the consumerism, are all completely absent. Christmas is just not a big holiday here in Ecuador.
New Years, on the other hand, is. Watch for next week’s post to really see some cultural differences!
