1. If you are on the equator and the stars are out it is the only place you can see all of the northern and southern constellations. Too bad we haven’t had any clear nights.
2. Most bathrooms (banos) are very clean, but if multiple stalls, be sure to look for toilet paper out by the sink area or you might be surprised. Many have just one large roll out there. I always went prepared.
3. Very few smokers in Ecuador regardless of income levels. Never saw smoking in or around most places. It became something to point out if we saw a smoker. Saw 2 at lunch today and they were either Korean or Chinese.
