    I recently returned from a trip to Ecuador and discovered that the Spanish there was a bit different. Can someone tell me how to say "waiter" and "straw" in Ecuadorian Spanish. Gracias.

    Straw seems to be one of those words that has a lot of variations. Moshe is correct, in Ecuador straw is sorbete. But if you´re curisous about other countries, here's a list.

    USA = STRAW
    Perú = cañita, sorbete
    Chile = bombilla
    México = pajilla
    Argentina = pajita / sorbete
    Venezuela = pitillo
    España = paja
    Ecuador = sorbete
    Cuba = absorbente
    Uruguay = pajita / sorbete
    Puerto Rico = sorbeto

    You're welcome! As to the word 'waiter', this is what I found:

    Spain = camarero
    Chile = garzón
    Caribbean Islands, Colombia, Central America, Ecuador, Mexico = mesero
    Venezuela = mesonero
    Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay = mozo
