"The destiny of men and women is to create a new world, to reveal a new life,
to remember that there exists a frontier for everything except dreams… In
history there are no solitary dreams; one dreamer breaths life into the next." 

Sebastião Salgado

"Good Friday is a very important holiday in Catholic Ecuador. In Quito takes place the Jesus del Gran Poder procession in the old colonial center, starting from the San Francisco Church. A statue of Jesus is carried through the streets, accommpanied by hooded men and others doing penitence on this day."
