The first thing that shocked me when I first came to Guayaquil was the weather. It is so similar to my sunny India, I couldn’t help but think I was already feeling home. The traffic on the streets was another hint that this was another déjà vu. The busy streets of this city are something I can feel familiar with. The only exception being the number of times Ecuadorians switch lanes, LOL!
But I wouldn’t consider myself a World Traveler –even more than a business man- if I didn’t respect and appreciate the different cultures, their unique characteristics and traditions. It is exactly why traveling is so much fun for me. How fun would it be if everybody behaved, ate, dressed and acted equally? I for one would be bored to death and eventually would simply stop traveling. Why bother? I have the Travel Channel so I wouldn’t be missing anything.
When I travel around the world, I want to see, eat, do and learn new things. From swimming with dolphins at the Florida Keys, eating excruciatingly hot and delicious...
