Tena and Beyond

otosWell, we finally left Quito. In conversations with other travellers it became clear to us that Quito isn´t that nice and it was time to move on.

We had planned to go north to a town called Otavalo so that Fion could write her LP author sample.

However, nobody informed the indigenous people of Ecuador about this and they have spent the last week and a half in protests and road blocks about the signing of an Ecuador/US free trade agreement (which sounds ludicrous except for the Ecuadorian oil interests).

So, we went west instead. Into the jungle. Well, near the jungle…no, it was the jungle, the edges of the dark and mysterious Amazon. Well, the edges aren´t dark, their kind of deep green. anyhoo…you´ve heard all of this before.
