A December Day in Quito 


December in Ecuador is a month of celebrations that include many cultural events.  Yadira and I went to El Sagrario Church in El Centro to celebrate a Mass for The Virgin of Guadalupe.  There were, without exaggeration, thousands of people inside and outside the Church.  Beautiful music and singing - Unfortunately, no pictures allowed.

After the Mass we visited the Church of San Francisco, a short walk away.  In the Convent next to the church there was a musical Christmas offering and a huge display of hand-made manger scenes.  So beautiful and creative!  What a delight to see!  Here are some of the many displays for your enjoyment:

Our Manger

Joyous Seasons Greetings from Yadira and David in Ecuador.  We wish everyone Happy Holidays with Peace and Happiness.

David - Thank you for a wonderful Christmas Chronicle!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all from Matt and Ray and Everyone at Live Well Ecuador
