Guayaquil, Ecuador

Ecuador is another country I still don't have a written and stamped postcard from, but I do have a few very nice postcards sent from other countries. these two that show the city of Guayaquil. These are from a bigger swap with Jane a couple of years ago.

Guayaquil, officially Santiago de Guayaquil, is the largest and the most populous city in Ecuador, with around 2.69 million people in the metropolitan area, as well as the nation's main port. The city is the capital of the Ecuadorian province of Guayas and the seat of the namesake canton. Guayaquil is located on the western bank of the Guayas River, which flows into the Pacific Ocean at the Gulf of Guayaquil.

The postcard above shows a partial view of the city beside Guayas River, and in the smaller pictures you can see Santa Ana's Hill Chapel, lighthouse and Malecon 2000.

...and this is a famous sight from Guayaquil - Santa Ana Hill. There are 400 and something steps according to Jane - phew! She tells me people live all the way up the hill, and at the top of the hill is the Santa Ana Hill Chapel.
