Things to Remember from Comuna Rhiannon, Malchingui, Ecuador

“Tell her I think she’s fancy.” This was said to a fellow comuner by her inebriated brother about a girl he was interested in. I love the shit out of it. Really.

Costeño Tradition, Colombia
My friend Zamir, a Colombian from Bógota, told Baptiste and I about this tradition of many Colombians on the coast. It goes like this. Evidently, around the age of 13 or 14, young men living in certain parts of Colombia’s coast, ‘comer una burra.’ Now, don’t take this literally, they don’t actually eat the burra. In fact, they are having sex with the burra (donkey) so that their members can become strong and sturdy. Evidently, the burra likes it after some time, according to Zamir. In addition, if you as the wife of a Costeño what she thinks about the tradition, she will reply that she fully accepts it, and in fact would be upset if her mate had claimed to be a Costeño without actually having taken the steps to ensure membership in said club.

In India (the motherland), we have a similar tradition. But instead of said burro, we use a monkey. If we're accepted by the monkey, she would wrap its tail around our neck and begin choking us, but we tap it twice on the shoulder if we want it to ease up.

In all seriousness though, thanks for writing about that Cam.

Ecuador is one of the most beautiful countries in South America. The weather, the colonial cities and the people are just fantastic. Nothing compares to the landscapes of the Highlands, the lush of the Amazon Jungle Forest, the exotic Beaches of the Coast and the mystery of the Galapagos Islands.

Electrolyte replacement is essential during periods of excessive sweating to avoid a serious and potentially lifethreatening condition called hyponatremia.
