Cultures, and people are different throughout the world yet we all share many commonalities. We alldesire love and friendship yet are all entertained by drama and conflict. For the most part people throughout the world seem very helpful.
Ecuador: The people here were amazing. They were very friendly and genuine. The first night we were there people bought us drinks and were genuinely very nice and cool. The second night we were there we got three different offers to stay in different hostals forfree. There was little to no begging and they people were very generous. We stayed with a family for a week and they were more than accommodating. The government here seemed to be very corrupt.

The culture overall was a little outdated but they had hints of modern style to them.New York City, New York, USA
