We spent my birthday at a small town near Loja called Vilcabamba. We had heard it was a town with a lot of expats and that it was a quaint town. I found it pleasant but not that interesting a town.
We did take a nice (except for the mosquitos) long walk along the river.
Apparently there are a lot of people from South Korea in the town, thus the Korean looking characters on the restroom at the tourist information office.
How many people does it take to paint a stripe on the road? Apparently 4 lot when you do it by hand.
It is common in Ecuador to see dogs that are on roofs of houses. They bark at everyone but seem to know it isn’t a good idea to jump down.
