Yoryi it seems you have a lot of resentimiento towards the big cities... especially GYE.. and I don't say this is in a hostile or sarcastic way towards you. maybe I'm wrong about you, but that's what it seems to me. I would LOVE for Ecuador to have another big city and I think Manta is going to be that! I would pick Manta to be the next big city in Ecuador because that's what Ecuador needs to be more modern and economically relevant in the international and regional neighborhood. Not to be regionalistic, but the sierra has Quito and Cuenca. Why not add another important city in the coast? As Guayaquileño and fellow costeño I support Manta and it's growth. I'm sure all Ecuadorians do, and if they don't they don't realize that metropolitan growth means a country's economic and social growth.
