Everyone on the road was honking the horns of their cars and cheering loudly out their windows, people walking the streets were dancing and screaming all about. I was just in awe of the whole experience. Watching the game at home with our Ecuadorian family was an unforgettable ...

The next day we went on a tour to Isla de la Plata ("the poor man's Galapagos"), which consisted of a 2+ hour walk on the island during which we saw dozens of blue footed boobies (very cute), 2 red footed boobies, and dozens of frigate birds incl many with their red puffed things out for courting. We ...
