Paris is not a country. I recently visited South Korea and it was nice. My dream country is the US. St Lucia looks nice too from those images.
I lived in Quito for three years... made it to Guayaquil, Otavalo, and Cuenca a couple of times. Of course the Galapagos are another major highlight of the country.Well there are dream countries and countries I'd like to live in and the two aren't necessarily the same. I'm starting to get curious about Ecuador at the moment. Particularly on the Pacific Ocean side. Only drawback is I don't know a word of Spanish, which could be quite challenging for any visitor in Ecuador.
I'm totally fascinated by that guy. I had a taxi driver called Pablo (no less) drive me from Guayaquil to Manta on a Saturday morning. And Pablo was listening probably for two or more hours to Correa on the car radio with complete attention. I could not understand a word of what was said as I don't know Spanish, but it sounded pretty charismatic to me, caring, and I did make out portions about anti corruption. Really the kind of guy a country with a deep sense of religion could fall for, as he does come across as very paternalistic. The interview below that Julian Assange had with him in 2012 gives a very good flavour of him. Great sense of humour as well.and it should be doing better now under the more progressive leadership of Correa.
