Pro-Ecuador Newsletter: A Remedy for Stress during These Chaotic Times, and Atuntaqui Men Strut Their Stuff in This "Revealing" Video

January 16, 2011

A View From the Roof:  Reflections on Chochos and Banks Too Big to Fail: Gary got his adrenaline flowing by reading a best seller on the recent, (and continuing), financial crisis. Then things got put into perspective by a walk across our land while communing with the chochos.  Read his reflections and commentary.

Atuntaqui New Year's Parade: Our video offers proof that the men of Atuntaqui really do strut their stuff. G-strings, bikinis, boas and bangles ruled the day. 

Warning: This video is not suitable for the straight-laced or squeamish.

Click here for a blog about this year's parade with lots of great pictures.

A  "Delicious" Surprise:  I have received two surprising gifts lately and they both involve apples from far-away places.  As a result of one of them, I’m on the lookout for Mrs. Bramley.  She’s plump, yellowish and rather seedy, but absolutely irresistible.  And I hear she makes a great pie.

Ecuador News: President Correa offers to grant citizenship to illegal immigrants in Ecuador if they report corrupt policemen who allow them to remain in Ecuador illegally in return for money and other bribes.
