An Ecuadorian Military Parade

These are the best of the best photos from a military parade held in honor of Armed Forces Day here in Quito, Ecuador. If you live locally, you may have heard the jets and helicopters flying overhead on the morning of Sunday, May 31st. You may have wondered about the increased traffic near Parque Bicentenario… it wasn’t just the closure of Rio Amazonas for the normal Sunday bike ride! It was also for the arrival of the Minister of Defense and the hoped for arrival of President Correa. Unfortunately, he did not attend but the event was still worthy of the Ecuadorian Commander in Chief.
