Poor telephone service
I have lived in Quito for more than 2 years now and dealt with the German embassy on several occasions. When visiting the embassy the staff is always very friendly and helpful.
However, the telephone service is almost always very poor. The Ecuadorian gentleman than usually answers the phone (extension 0) speaks poor German and constantly seems to be in a bad mood. The only information he ever gives (in a very unfriendly manner) is at what time you have to call back in order to speak with the person in charge of the respective matter.

I find this very disappointing and believe that the German embassy deserves a better representative.
