Headed to Ecuador tomorrow

14 posts in this topic

I'll be in other countries pretty much til the start of the spring semester, exploring and doing independent archaeological/anthropological surveys and observations. My wife and I are flying into Quito, renting a car and hitting the major highlights (expect for the Galapagos, which, tragically, are out of our budget) and possibly ducking into northern Peru if I can bribe the border officials to let us take an Ecuadorian rental car over the border. A few days before Christmas we'll take a bus into southern Colombia as well.

Then back home for a week before I fly to Panama for ten days with my father-in-law.

tl:dr version: get ready for more pictures.

Otavalo Market is pretty cool if you get the chance to visit. It's about 1.5 hrs outside of Quito.

Protect the wifey/spawn.

the first time we were gonna do this trip it was gonna be trekking extinct volcanoes and rafting down the amazon river.

now we're cruising around in a chevy volt and watching the sunset from tidy guesthouses.

i'll have to find new ways to get my adrenaline kicks

    • You're looking at a false reality. You're creating a narrative that doesn't truly exist, that a person is only defined by their race and nothing else. Your views on people are just as bad as those who created the Jim Crow Laws, spit on people and look down on them based on race only, and enslaved millions because of the color of their skin; never once considering them how they are as a person. You see them based on their race instead of how they are as people. Ignore the fact that America has elected a black president twice in a row for an 8 year presidency. Ignore the plentiful amount of successful blacks in plenty of fields of career fields who are wealthy and living a productive and successful lifestyle. Ignore the dominance of black athletes in sports. Look at them as people, and how their personality and characteristics got them to where they are instead of race. The way they got to where they are is completely justified and has nothing to do with race.
    • He's the most intriguing prospect of the draft.  If he can be a true T with the ability to not only play both spots but to excel in them we may have selected one of the steals of the draft.  Sucks we won't have that 5th yr option but I'd welcome that problem later to have a true LT/RT for years to come.
    • I 100% support his politics. I 100% hate him as a QB...along with Wilson Luck and Ryan. I want him to succeed as I like having NFL adversaries for Cam #TeamCam
