Chan and the World

Ecuador, South America

My 6th country in South America and 50th country in the world, Ecuador is a paradise for those who love nature.

With its mystical beauty, snow-capped peaks along the avenue of volcanoes (some are still active) spread across the country, countless waterfalls in Banos, second highest capital city in the world, hugging clouds, rolling hills, cows and sheep grazing the slopes of the mountains. With the exception of Ireland, Ecuador has to be the greenest countries I have ever visited in my life. It seems almost everything is painted in green.

This planet continues to amaze me.

Ecuador in a nutshell – Latin American standard of living with cost of living almost matching that of USA.
