“Believe in Education, Eliminate Repression.” You almost don’t need to be able to read Spanish to understand this one. Cuenca

Not much in the way of adventures lately, at least not in the usual sense of this blog,  most of my recent adventures consist of trying to remember how to conjugate a verb in the tense I want to use.  Or, simply trying to remember the appropriate word to use.

In the meantime,  I have come to really love the graffiti and murals in Ecuador.  Often political,  sometimes just plain amusing, and generally socially conscious, they regularly impress me.
