So I'm hardly a photographer, but I thought it was time for you to see, rather than read, the glory that is Ecuador. Click on the link to browse through a sampling of photos (mostly of my vain ass) from the last month or so.
I'd also like to take a moment to recognize the incredible moment that is the election of Barack Obama. I have heard so many times over the past few days, here in Ecuador, from my friends around the world, and back in Berkeley, that they are FINALLY proud to be an American. I couldn't be more thrilled, but I also love the perspective provided by Alice Walker for both Obama and the American people in her open letter to the president-elect. A short, beautiful comment:
Que te vayas bien, amigos. Amor y paz.
