The internet here being somewhat unreliable, and it being impossible (effectively) to upload much in the way of photos, this will be replaced when possible... but most likely there will simply be a surge of "ecuador X" articles all at once on the 18th or 19th of January.
I'll drop what I can here, photo-wise, until I get home:
From the statue of the Virgin
From the balcony of the Secret Garden hostel.
You should be able to click on either for a larger image.
