Before moving on , I feel I must respond to comments from yesterday's entry:
Thank you for the comments in response to my revisited Menestras del Negro post.
I'm sorry if I offended anyone. That was not my intention. My criticism of a specific logo used by a specific company is in no way meant to be a comment on Quito or Ecuador at large. I agree that there is also racism in the United States. I agree that as an outsider I may not understand all Ecuadorian cultures and customs. We all react to things differently based on our ethnicity, nationality, age, gender, etc. I stand by my right to question, analyze, and comment on events, people, places, and things that I observe. I might not always be right, but I have the right to my opinion.
And just for clarification, I no longer live in Ecuador. When I wrote the original post I had been living there for almost a year. I am now back in the U.S.
I miss you Lisa Lou.
