Drinking with the locals

As most of you would know, drinking’s one of my favorite hobbies, so I’m not one to turn down an invite for a beer. Since Ecuador the beer comes in 20 ouncers and it took me a bit to learn the protocol, but it goes like this; One person buys 1-4 beers and is handed one empty 5-8 oz glass. The glass and a bottle of beer get passed around clockwise, and each person pores the amount they want and shoots it, before passing it to the next person. If you empty the bottle in the cup at your turn, you must pore a little more from the next bottle. If there’s no more, you buy the next round. It’s a lot of fun and gets you pretty schnokered fast, but way social.
…Not to discriminate but I’ve noticed Colombians, Ecuadorians, and Peruvians seem to be much happier drunks that in Central America, though maybe it’s just that my Spanish is getting better.
