Ecuador Locals: Lessons Learned

I read this blog post and it touched my heart so much that I wanted to post it here. I think I will go back and read it often. We are spoiled Americans here in the USA- there is no comparison.

We plan to do all we can to NOT be Ugly Americans (rich gringos) in Ecuador. We do plan to use local labor whenever we can but we need to remember to help keep the balance. If we are willing to pay 'anything' for what we want/need, we are helping price things out of the reach of the locals. We don't want to do that.
