I had to post a shot of Ecuador, given the terrible scenes that we have seen on the news this week after the earthquake. This is San Francisco Square in the capital city, Quito, taken at sunset last August. We stayed in Casa Gangotena which has a terrace overlooking the square that provides a splendid view of the city. Before we arrived I was already planning to capture this view!

The memories I have from Ecuador were wonderful. Everyone was so welcoming, hospitable and had a great sense of spirit for life and their beautiful country. I really do feel sad for the people that have been affected and the country as a whole. Thankfully the main tourist areas of Quito, the Andes and the Galápagos were not affected and I would encourage anyone to go to this amazing country. Hopefully the recovery from the disaster won't take too long.

Thanks for looking.
