My upcoming trip to South America

Yes, I finally pulled the trigger and bought myself the ticket to go along on my family's yearly trip to Ecuador. It's been about 3 years since I have indulged in this voyage and I can't wait to see what awaits!

You see my wife is from the city of Guayaquil, Ecuador and every year I fork out the dough and send her and my boys to see her family. How this has become a yearly tradition, I will never know! 

Anyways, it will be extremely interesting to see the wine selection this time around. I remember last time I went there was a huge selection of Chilean, Argentine, and Spanish wines to choose from. Californian wines were very poorly represented and there were just a dozen or so European wines (excluding Spain). 

I will be there for around 2 weeks so I will make sure to take lots of pictures of the wine selections and liquor shops so everyone can get an idea of the local wine market down there. It's a very warm country and so I'm a bit worried about buying a lot of cooked juice, but I will definitely be exploring wines I've never seen before. Cheers!
