Immigration Police – Friendly encounter

So yesterday my mother, Gerri and I were stopped on the streets of San Clemente by the Immigration Police. They asked to see our passports. I didnt have my passport OR cedula as any other day. A couple of Ecuadorian friends stopped by to make sure the Police were not giving us any trouble. The police took our photo with their phone. My mother had her cedula and showed them that, and that seemed to placate them. They said thanks and were on their way. One EC friend was telling us thepolice were not important and used other expletives and hand gestures. It didnt bother me, but I did find it a bit unusual. Anyone else have a similar experience?

 

Figuring it out… 1 police photo at a time
