Around Quito

Whew! Been busy and Mitad del Mes has come and gone twice, but here's what's going on NOW! Fiesta has begun with the first parade. The queen's parade will be Friday. And on with the celebration until December 6. Then on to the Christmas celebrations.

Forget Thanksgiving holiday in Quito. As far as Quitenos are concerned, every day is a day to thank God. Besides Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead, provided two holidays to begin November with. Of course, Memorial Day in May is foreign to Ecuadorians.

And the November 20 procession in honor of La Dolorosa produced a plethora of fireworks.

Rafael Correa has announced he's running for a third term, and it seems he's the popular candidate. I don't know why Luis Gutierrez thinks he stands a chance when he was ousted aready.

The digging up around Quito is to bury the wiring underground.

Fiesta! Fiesta! Fiesta! Get away from your lumps-of-coal life and celebrate... that's, of course, if Obama's fingers haven't taken your travel money yet.

Don't expect anything in the bull fight arena. Nothing has replaced the bull fights. Matadors have become an unemployment statistic.
