Jon never did get his balsa surf board. First it was price, then it was accessibility… it´s too bad.
Today we gave up on guitars as our visit to the Vogel factory proved the guitars no different in price or quality to those in the US.
This morning I found that between leaving the hostel in Baños and arising at our hostel this morning in Quito, my camera had gone. It´s too bad that I´ll now need to shell out $300 for a new one, it´s too bad that I lost a gig of pictures, and it´s too bad that I won´t be able to take any more pictures.
