Ok, I would have had no idea Ecuador was a toffee center. Very cool. I learned something new. (Plan to go in about 4 years)

And a long, long way from Bristol too, right ? (Sometimes I feel amazed at how far I've traveled from home).
Anyway, thanks for posting this. Adding Ecuador to the itinerary for our RTW with kids.

What a fun shot. I make my husband crazy with shops like this... I always have to stop and get a snack.

Thank you for sharing!

I wonder how many blogs Ecuadorian toffee has inspired. Surprising what the little things about travel can do for you. Gorgeous photo.
