  • No Surf Board, No Guitar, No Camera, No Bueno…

    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 […]

  • To Quito with a companion

  • ¨No Se Puede Mostar La Página¨

    ….our first internet cafe computer screen reads.. so we´re forced to move on, but it´s still by far the best internet cafe I´ve ever been in.

  • Rubber Boots and a 24 inch Machete, $11.

    We finally made plans to leave Montañita and travel onward… just as we started to get to know this this new English Girl who moved in next door. Oh well. We hopped a bus, bags up top, and got to Guayaquil. From Guayaquil Jon was in charge and we headed south to Vilcabamba – a […]
