In Ecuador the celebration today is to usher out the old year. There are very large speakers all over Mindo, music had been blaring all day in the streets and people are happy. Wishing you a Happy New Year full of interesting new experiences!
Man on the street, not too much traffic so everyone walks in the street.
Masks are for sale for the celebration. At midnight effigies and masks are burned in a bonfire at the park, a popular figure to burn for many years has been our President Bush.
Our hotel room for just one night, tonight. The Dragonfly Inn next to a river that I hope will drown out some of the partying tonight.
