As Rob and I sat outside a bar in Baños, Ecuador, the daughter of the tavern’s owner became fascinated with us and attacked us with her stuffed Barney.

In fact, the dress of officials such as airport security and army personel in the streets was strikingly discordant with the chaotic backdrops in which these people stood. Everything worked smoothly and without fail — buses and taxis arrived safely at their destinations, no one was thrown from the vehicles or run over — but in every instance a desirable outcome seemed implausible at best, a miracle at worst.

The most problematic issue for me is — and has been since my many trips to Mexico — the lack of varied roles for women. It seems girls are to be very sexual

Some graffiti I saw in Quito roughly translated to “Sex when I want, pregnant when I choose.” This dovetailed with my sister’s experience at a couple of Planned Parenthood’s in California where South and Central American women lined up for the birth

As a result, the ubiquitous presence of children in the counry is conspicuous for someone from the abortion-happy north. I just hope the extra numbers will help the next generation tackle the problems they are inheriting.
