So you're about to head to Ecuador for a few days of meetings. But you realize: you have no idea what Ecuador is like. [Sale: 50% off until August 25! After that, the price goes up.] Sure, you know where you're staying. Maybe you've got a guidebook that describes places to visit if you manage to scrape together a few hours of sightseeing. But what's Ecuador really like for doing business? More practically:- How should you greet your business partners? - If you're invited to someone's house, what sort of gift should you bring?- What color wrapping paper should you use? Certain funeral-related colors should be avoided, of course. - Are there any special considerations for female travelers? - Perhaps most importantly: if you order the quimbolitos, what on Earth is that going to look like? (hint: it's a dessert!) Ecuador: Business Traveler's Passport is designed specifically for businesspeople. It contains nearly two hundred pages of information on Ecuador, focusing on areas of particular concern to the business traveler. While it does contain a small amount of information on hotels and sightseeing opportunities, these sections are intentionally light--this is not a travel guide! Seriously! Instead, it has entire sections of information on: * Ecuador Basics: A brief history of Ecuador, with some background and historical highlights.* Country Facts: Demographics and other statistical data, with an offline map of the country.* Doing Business: Greetings & courtesies, meeting protocol, business attire, business entertaining, etc.* Women: As travelers, are there any special considerations in Ecuador? As a businesswoman, are any extra measures needed? How are ecuadorian women treated in their own country?* Money: What does the money look like? How much should different service people be tipped...if at all?* Travel: Visa info, departure formalities, electrical system, etc.* Safety: Emergency numbers, notes on street crime, hospital locations, health & medical care.* Points of Interest: A few interesting museums and cultural sites, in case there's time after the meetings.* City View: Background on Guayaquil and Quito, with a handful of hotel descriptions.* Telephone System: The subtleties of dialing to & from Ecuador. There's even a section on how to use pay phones in Ecuador (without needing to read Spanish).* Life Cycle: From birth to marriage to old age, what's life like?* Gift Giving: The subtleties of giving personal or business gifts.* Holidays and Festivals: Solid background on the popular holidays and festivals.* Religion: Info on Ecuador's religious climate.* Superstitions and Folklore: Common superstitions, along with ecuadorian stereotypes.* Food and Recipes: Descriptions of common ecuadorian foods, along with recipes for a dozen dishes, including muchines de yuca, locro, llapingachos, and the aforementioned quimbolitos.* Terms Dictionary: Over 100 words & phrases translated into Spanish, with audio samples available to play.* Embassies: Embassy locations and contact info for 100+ countries.
