|Important Safety Information
To be distributed to program participants via the Office of Global Engagement. A representative of the Office of Global Engagement will give a briefing during our December prep meeting. The State Department website also has important safety information about Ecuador in general: http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/country/ecuador.html. This is my second trip to Ecuador in two years and I did our exact itinerary on my own in July 2014. I’ll take you to places where I feel safe. It’s important that you do not wear flashy clothes and jewelry or carry fancy cameras and hand bags on this trip. Also, remember, Ecuadorian law is different from US Law. I’ll discuss important differences in our briefing.
