About the Guru

I like to meet people and talk about the wonders of my city and Ecuador, its customs, culture, food, crafts. I have to offer the world a visit to the Seminario park, Malecon 2000, as an optional Nursery Route (the next day). The meeting point to visit is the Parque Seminario or de las Iguanas in Guayaquil.
