Drilling out my panela to save weight...

Ecuador-    A beautiful land of barking dogs, amazing mountainscapes and friendly wrinkled old people 

Chocolate co-op in Salinas Ecuador!  These folks do a pretty good job of explaining the villages thriving artisan cooperative scene 

My plan was to take a bunch of these delicious little chocolates with me to enjoy along the way. They didn't make it far. 

Ecuador has had a long sorted history of trains. Recently they have revamped a section 

The great Chimborazo.

When the outside falls down just build a new inner wall.

This dirt did not do as the sign recommended

Trying to keep the hitchhikers to a minimum 

shit... I hope there is a bike lane?

Im always good with carless roads

 Brewed coffee. A rarity in Ecuador.


Jesus would approve of this coffee break

I told you, I'm a sucker

The bike is not the only thing that needs a bit of maintenance

waiting out the rain.
Its been a good run! I know my trip explanations have been short. (people looking at this blog for facts and figures must be furious) Sitting in internet cafes is not my favorite thing. After a round of E-mails, I find my attention span shorter than the life of a cassette CNC'd from a block of cheese. So if anyone has questions on routes and er things? Feel free to E-mail me and I'll do what I can to answer in some semblance of seriousness:    

Just kidding about the Panela
