  1. Love this post! I completed a semester abroad in Guayaquil, Ecuador 2 years ago and certainly needed to adjust to their concept of time. After a couple of weeks I became accustomed, and to be honest, preferred the laid back ‘it-happens-when-it-happens’ lifestyle. Thanks for sharing, certainly has me reflecting on my life in Ecuador. ❤

      1. That’s amazing! I certainly fell in love with the country during my time there. I am grateful to have been able to experience the multiple pockets of culture it has to offer.

  2. I loved reading this because I have experienced how perceptions of time differ from place to place and now, as a retired person, my day absolutely moves differently than it ever did before. I visited Ecuador back in the 70’s and if I remember the trip correctly, we flew from Quito to Guayaquil in order to take a lengthy bus ride (truly a new adventure for my younger self) to the Peruvian border headed for a small town in northern Peru which was the destination for my traveling partner. I wish (don’t we always?) that I had taken time to see more!
