Unfortunately, Ecuador was a country I was only able to skim given I had to get back to BA in a very short period of time. Shots like these make me realize just how much I missed out on. Tom Bartel April 23, 2012 at 2:53 am - Reply Yeah, Samuel, I guess I was trying to show just how big this thing is. I looked at it every day from my apartment across the old city from the Panecillo. It took me months to actually get up close. It’s a uniquely South American mentality to puts an enormous statue like this overlooking the city.
