Just Back...Report and Regards

Hello all -

I just returned from a very interesting trip to Ecuador, and am eager to rejoin the wonderful discussions here on the Europe board.

My trip, if I may indluge (I know that Ecuador is in South America), was very fascinating. A blend of Spanish and Native cultures, Ecuador has many fascinating places. I visited Cuenca, Cotopaxi, Quito, Otavalo, Riobamba, and rode on the famous Devil's Nose train. If anyone has questions/comments, feel free to join in.

Do we know you? Any any reason not to tell about your trip on the Latin American forum?

Dear W.W.

I am not sure if you know me, though some others on this board probably do know me. I often contribute to the Europe board, and just wanted to say that I was back from vacation. Yes, my vacation was in S.A., ratehr than Europe, but I didn't think it would hurt to add a sentence or two about my experience there. And by the way, I made a posting on Ecuador on the Latin America board.

Hi everyone--

I want to join in here to tell everyone about my trip to pick up my laundry in San Bernardino, California. It is a lovely town, full of cultural influences of nearby Riverside and Redlands. My shirts were beautifully pressed by charming native people.

I know that this has nothing to do with Europe, but because I am such an important person on this board I just naturally thought that everyone would be fascinated by my every move.

I am planning to have coffee tomorrow morning in Temecula and will post a full report.

Dear me (and woe is me)

I will be very interested in hearing about your coffee tomorrow.

By the way, Ecuador does have a lot of Spanish (as in the European spanish) influence...even for the casual tourist. I think a lot of people on this board don't know much about Ecuador. This may broaden their horizons a bit.

By the way, your coffee probably comes from Colombia, which is also in South America...so why don't you stick to the Fodor's Latin America board?

Dear x - ding dong

Dear mimi - I did not bring a pareo...I save those for European trips.

However, I am starting to think we are all digressing a bit too much here. I merely wanted to state that I had a good time on vacation.

There is a Euro (spanish flavor) in Ecuador, and the official currency of Ecuador is the US dollar. Boy, how we are all interconnected!

Mememe,

Did you spend the night at the Riverside Inn? Important people have stayed there.
