    How is the SUCRE currency coming along? The currency of ALBA nations? We haven't heard much of that recently.
    Did it die with Chavez?

    lovely countryside btw (if you have an armed guard to assist your viewing!)

    I was in Ecuador recently and loved it. Definitely going to have to spend more time there. Guayaquil is like Miami but better!

    I remember the guards at the Chinese restaurant in Quito one with a machine pistol, the other with a pump action shotgun - nice! And…. Tbe cards with special expensive stamps posted from the Galapogas and which never arrived… The local Indians were charming though.

    I lived in GYE for many years and my family and I enjoyed it immensely. BUT, GYE better than MIA - really! You must have been on something to come to that conclusion!
