Stay calm, this is not going to be a regular thing… probably another week until more photos or another update for that matter. These are all two-weeks old anyhow…
Archive for 'Ecuador'
So I have now made it to Peru… but it was a very rough road at the beginning . Ecuador has long been disputing their border with Peru, and to keep the Peruvian “Tuc-tucs” out the road is (or so Tyson warned me) the steepest and roughest that I will likely encounter here in South America.
drop-offs are what makes Mocoa-Pasto the most dangerous road in Colombia
So much has happened in the past week that I will just do a quick Photo/blog to catch up. I had a fantastic time with Igel and Paola at the “casa ciclista” in San Agustin. Chatting with the 5 other Cyclo-tourists and generally geeking out over maps was also exciting. From there I rode south to Mocoa, where I camped out at the restaurant at km4. The women there helped me to make my own banana-leaf-wrapped tomales. Next door was a night club/brothel, and the ladies were excited when they saw me. My host sent me inside and chased off the hookers… though I did get one kiss “on the house”!
