Ecuador was a massive surprise for my partner and I. Besides the Galapagos Islands, we didn’t know anything about the country. It turned out to be our favorite from the eight countries we visited in South America. Besides the beauty of the cities and nature, we loved the people.
We had some of the best and most genuine experiences with Ecuadorian people. One of them happened in Quito, on our way to the teleferico. We were at the bus stop, but there was no information indicating the direction, so we did what we normally do: we started asking people. Amongst them, there was an old lady who understood our Spanish and decided to help us.
She not only told us which bus to take, but she also stopped it and told the driver where to drop us off. We had tons of experiences during our six months trip to South America, but it is this act of kindness that I’m most fond off.
