I work at the Canadian embassy in Quito. Every third Thursday of the month, we organize a networking event for Canadians living in Ecuador and 'friends of Canada' (called 'Polar Night'). This month, Polar Night will be taking place at Zinc Gastrobar (Paul Rivet Protected content Whymper) between Protected content 830 PM on Thursday, July 19. It's a good opportunity to meet other Canadians living here. If you're interested, you can e-mail Protected content for more details. Thanks and see you there!
