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.

sounds great... about those border guards... i'd be thinking more about how much it's going to cost to get back in.

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
