A trip to Ecuador in October and November 2009

In Late October and early November, I went to Ecuador for the first time. It was a great trip, part of the Taza Dorada competition, and visits to small farms near the Peru border that we are buying direct with the help of Alejandro from Colombia. I did not edit or caption these photos very strictly, but believe me, there were over 750 initially. -Tom
