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.

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

Surfing in Montañita
Many people from all over the world travel to Montañita and enjoy surfing. Surfing in Montañita offers strong, consistent waves and good tubes make it a great place for accomplished surfers and challenging for newer surfers. Montañita is an increasingly popular destination on the international surfing circuit.[7] In the summer months wave heights range from 0.3 to 1 meter. In the late fall and winter waves can be as large as 1.5 meters. On occasion, from January to March, waves as large as 2 meters can be seen. Each February during Carnival, Montañita hosts an international surfing competition. [7]
