Halls can be candy

Toilet paper can be scented
I guess maybe I never thought of this being a necessity before but then again we don't throw way our toilet paper in the trash can in the US. You would be hard pressed to find toilet paper that is unscented here. I've tried. The jury is still out in my opinion whether or not this is a good thing. I'll let you think about it on your own and decide for yourself.

I remember the first time I got an almuerzo to-go to find my fruit juice put in a plastic bag. I love this! It is very common to see people with to-go drinks in a bag. Sometimes there is a straw and sometimes you just bite a hole in the corner and drink it like a big melted freeze pop. It seems smart to me. The plastic isn't the best, but it takes up less space in the trash. I bet there is a bio-degradable material that could be used now...
Next in line please...
Wait, there's a line? I haven't quite figured out what the order in lines is, or maybe there isn't any. I have to say that it completely depends on where you are, but it is not at all uncommon to be standing in line to have someone walk to the very front. Ooo this gets me. Something else interesting is when using the public bathrooms often people will stand in front of a stall instead of standing in line and waiting until the next opens up. This has so far worked to my advantage, but you just hope you don't pick the wrong stall with someone who takes a long time.
These are just a few normal aspects of life here in Ecuador we have grown accustomed to. As we think of more we will continue to share them in future posts.
