Kerry - after some googling I think you may be right - I honestly have no clue. I have always referred to it as hibiscus or jamaica. I enjoy it as an iced beverage. Can anyone confirm the item?

Yup - hibiscus flower - I've purchased it as sorrel before in Barbadoes but perhaps the drink is called sorrel?

Gotta say that seafood plate has been stuck in my since I first got the image - I want to walk on the beach, pick up raw seafood from the fishermen and then have it cooked for me on the spot....

It looks like South America to me. No idea who it is, though.

FrogPrincesse got it. Our next blogger is indeed Panaderia Canadiense. The terrain looks unfamiliar because she is taking us on a ROAD TRIP!!!

OK. So I have Enchilada sauce on my face. Still my enthusiasm knows no bounds. I would love to visit Ecuador and have Beth for a guide.

Yes, road tripping to the coast. I can't tell you exactly where, because we're not sure yet! Sunday will be in Ambato, and then Monday we're on the road to goodness knows where.
