Hopefully I didn´t speak too soon. I´ll be crying lots if I don´t get on a flight tonight.

The funny thing about Ecuadorians is they´re SO pround of their country. Almost anybody I meet wants to know if I liked it, how long I spent here, whether I spent more time here than other countries, and when am I coming back. They´re always full of stories about the incredibly nice people, and the wonderful food, women, music, parties etc. Anyways, I argued with a taxi driver yesterday. I got fed up with being asked how much I like Ecuador, whether it´s better than Australia, etc etc. I told him I don´t like Ecuador because the people are annoying, the food too rich, the music stupid, and the things too expensive, and the cities polluted and ugly. Oh man you should´ve seen his face. From happy jolly to murderous shades of red. I also asked him why everyone wants to know where I´m from, how superficial they were they can´t see below the skin, just because I´m Asian in appearance says nothing about who I am. Blahblahblah. My usual racial stereotyping spill. Not sure if he understood what I was talking about, but my angry tone was unmistakable.

So. Ecuador, nice, well set up for tourism, lots of stuff to do, good climate, food not too bad, people nice. But home is still better. Miss you Sydney!!
