A President for the People

The President of Ecuador has the peculiar notion that the people should come first in this country...I know, that's pretty "left leaning", but what the hey, he is the democratically elected leader!!!

Rafael Correa has helped make the highways a little more driver friendly, has instituted sweeping reforms aimed at helping the poor get a plot of land and house they can call their own, and even started a program, whereby little villages are able to have nicely constructed sidewalks,  at least, on the main drags...

 

Take a look--here is some of the sidewalk construction on the little town just south of us...

Take a look at the guys working these sidewalks...
