These are some of themes across South America. First up is Heejung presenting things. She doesn’t always manage to present the things correctly on her hand.
Heejung presenting a waterfall near Banos. Doesn’t quite look right.
Heejung presenting the Ecuator. Well kind of.
Heejung presenting a tourists head. Or it may be the statue in the background in the middle of Old Town Quito.
Heejung presenting another waterfall in Puerto Quito (Cascada Azul)
Next up is My Blurry Tourist theme.
High up on a mountain with Quito in the background
Cascada Azul in the background.
And finally is Heejung’s frustrated face “How come I never visited here before?”
“How come I never ventured into the Jungle before?”
“How come this is my first time to the Equator?”
“How come I never went into the highest cable car before to look down on Quito before?”
“How come I didnt know about this town called Banos before”?”

Not much to write about Sucre. Or about the photo’s. We were kinda tired I guess. So here are some travel quotations:
“Our Nature lies in movement; complete calm is death.”
“Too often. . .I would hear men boast of the miles covered that day, rarely of what they had seen.”
“Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey.” Fitzhugh Mullan
“Bizarre travel plans are dancing lessons from God.”
“The traveller sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see.”
G. K. Chesterton
“One always begins to forgive a place as soon as it’s left behind.”
The jungle is filled with life. We aren’t really wildlife people but this was really fascinating. We didn’t get to see any large animals like a jaguar, since most large animals are nocturnal and we are very much dayturnal. But we did get to see a lot of bugs. So here we go:
This is a scorpion spider. We saw a whole bunch of crazy spiders and centipedes during a hike through a canyon. But this one was the coolest. The guide said this one is really dangerous and also preys on the other large spiders for food.
This was an awesome Capybara we saw from the boat with a bird on his back. A capybara is the world’s largest rodent (rat cousin).
There were so many different kinds of ants in the jungle. It was pretty crazy. The thing the guide told us to watch out the most for were fire-ants. He was more concerned about them than spiders. Interesting fact time : When combined, all ants in the world weigh about as much as all humans
Howler monkeys. Very loud and very wild. This was a close as we got.
Paw print of a jaguar in the mud. That’s as close as we got to a jaguar.
Find the grasshopper.
Tarantula we found in the jungle. It was pretty fast. I was taking a lot of pictures of it until our guide decided to put his toe beside it to show us the scale. I don’t know if that was the smartest move but at that moment a frog appears and the tarantula goes after the frog.
Another huge ant. Tasted a bit sour.

For such an picturesque place I didn’t take as many photo’s. I did take quite some video’s so you have to look forward to. Below is a nice breakfast with some essential coca-leaves. Works better than coffee.
Q wandering around Cuenca. He like bridges.
What? No Q, try flying again !
That’s better !
Banos at night. Q likes romantic hangouts.
Haha, Silly Q, you don’t have a license ! Plus you’re drunk. That would be a bad idea !
