Ecuador strives to keep the dollar circulating

The Sacajawea Dollar coin - popular in Ecuador.

Within the past month, a lot has been going on here in Ecuador. President Correa has imposed a new tax levy on a large number of imports in order to develop and stir interest in buying local goods, and to vaccinate the country against the effects of the downturned global economy. This move will doubtless affect a major sector of the middle and upper class who build their businesses around selling imported goods in Ecuador.

Montañita, Ecuador

We arrived in Montañita on Wednesday just after sunset, the ride was incredible along the coast. the bus drove through little pueblos on the side of the road and everyone was cooking dinner and the smell was great! It was my first sunset over the Pacific Ocean and it was excellent.
