Active Ecuador

Climatologists speak of the "Zone of Intertropical Convergence" when attempting to explain the weather on either side of the Equatorial line in Ecuador's highlands.  In practical terms, seasons in Ecuador are rather difficult to predict.  When the sun is out, the Ecuadoreans say "It's making a very strong summer".  But Quito is also known as the City of Eternal Spring, another way of saying that you're likely to have intense equatorial sun as well as brief intense showers on any given day.  Pack accordingly.
