My Trip to Ecuador
By: Scott Booth
Ecuador is an amazing place to me because of all the amazing places and foods they have, Above is a picture of the Ecuador flag. In 2009, Ecuador had a population of 13.6 million people and they speak Quechua and spanish. The Capital City in Ecuador is Quito, Their currency (type of money) is dollars (same as U.S.), and two neighboring countries of Ecuador are Perú and Colombia. Below is a Map of Ecuador, all neighboring countries of Ecuador, and all the major cities in Ecuador.

Ecuador's Famous Foods
When I went to Get something to eat because I was hungry, I say this amazing looking restaurant and saw all the amazing food they had I had to dig in. By the time I was finished, I could barely move from all the fantastic yet interesting and weird looking food.
Climate/Weather of Ecuador
The general climate/weather in Ecuador is always mid-cold or to be more specific, the temperature is always from the 40s to the 60s. It sounds cold, but as long as you have a coat, the place is wonderful, never too hot and never too cold, It is the most magnificent place ever in my opinion.
In this festival is a ritual of God by having shirtless men baring crosses down the street each one representing Jesus. It continues until 3pm the purported hour of Jesus' death.
