1 Necessary Vocal Skill for Life in Ecuador

There I was, my first day in Ecuador… while staying in the house of a friend… locked out in the street.

I had left the house to buy a water, and when I came back, the door was shut.

There was no doorbell (it was a poorer part of Quito) and knocking didn’t seem to do the trick.

You see, in Ecuador, as in everywhere in Latin America, folks have high walls surrounding their properties for security purposes so it’s not like you can just walk up to the front porch like in the States.

Finally, after 45 minutes, my friend appeared and looked confused… “why didn’t you just whistle?” he said.

Whistle, I can’t whistle… soon I learned his friends had a special whistle to identity when they were at the gate.

Whistling… a necessary skill in Ecuador.
