UNIT 7:  UNIT 7 A Rose Is A Rose Slide2:  The history of Valentine's Day -- and its patron saint -- is shrouded in mystery. But we do know that February has long been a month of romance. St. Valentine's Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition. Cupid:  Cupid THE ANDES MOUNTAINS IN ECUADOR:  THE ANDES MOUNTAINS IN ECUADOR Ecuador has been blessed with an incomparable geography. Ecuador boasts a beautiful coastline, fantastic biological diversity in the Amazon Jungle and, of course, a breathtaking scenery of the Andes Mountains. Ecuador:  Ecuador As a newly discovered destination for the adventure traveler, much of Ecuador remains untamed and largely uncharted, yet it is surprisingly easy to enjoy. An extensive infrastructure is quickly being developed to accommodate the increasing demands of tourism, making Ecuador just as amenable to shoestring backpackers looking for serendipitous adventure as it is to luxury travelers. Colombia:  Colombia Colombia was one of the three countries that emerged from the collapse of Gran Colombia in 1830 (the others being Ecuador and Venezuela). A 40-year insurgent campaign to overthrow the Colombian Government escalated during the 1990s, undergirded in part by funds from the drug trade. Although the violence is deadly and large swaths of the countryside are under guerrilla influence, the movement lacks the military strength or popular support necessary to overthrow the government. An anti-insurgent army of paramilitaries has grown to be several thousand strong in recent years, challenging the insurgents for control of territory and illicit industries such as the drug trade and the government's ability to exert its dominion over rural areas.
