Bringing in the New Year - by cross dressing?!

When in Rome, do as the Romans. When in Ecuador ... do we have to?!

We hope you've had an enjoyable New Year celebration and you've started 2009 as you mean to go on. It does seem to be the time of year when doing outrageous antics appear to be more acceptable, and this is true the world over. Above are photos of a Quest team on their gap year a few years back, enjoying the 31st December in Quito, Ecuadorian style. This involves men dressing as women and women dressing as men, and then taking to the streets to stop traffic and ask for money in exchange for a dance!!

It would be rude not to join in with the festivities, but I've never really understood the association of bringing in the new year with cross dressing - and don't those tights half itch on hairy legs!

Worth trying to introduce on the streets of London??
