Ecuador is a country of contrasts.
Here the old meets new, the ancient the modern, the powerty the wealth and the cold the heat.
Everything is extreme in Ecuador.
And there is always the opposite around.
I have noticed that since the roads are the bloodvessels of a country, there is no other better way to get the pulse, than from those roads.
Here is a collection of roads, view from them, with contrasts and even contradictions, that Ecuador has to offer.
