Big thanks to this month's donors! Most notably, the Strawn Family and three anonymous contributors (you know who you are!) whose donations are literally making this trip a reality.
From our hearts and to yours: Thank you.
As a substitute for not actually traveling to such stunning locations ourselves, the film will have to suffice until Colombia calms down a bit.
Ironically, like Daniel before me, all of the images I captured for all of Ecuador are likely gone forever, by a turn of bad luck. I was so devastatingly upset, going from bus station to office trying to discover if any Good Samaritan had returned my treasure.
So you will regrettably see no images of mine from this really awe-inspiring place. It was so photogenic, honestly one of my visual favorites of the entire trip thus far, and I was quite heart-broken to learn that the memory card was no longer with us…
Tropical Guayaquil is a water city, straddling a large river that meets the Pacific. We stayed with Rudolfo (and two of his Argentinean friends, Sebastian and (yet another) Daniel), an ever-smiling and very enchanting man who showed us sights and granted us a look at life in the city. Views from densely populated hilltops crowned with lighthouses, theme-park like river walks, and city centers entirely and literally crawling with hundreds of full-grown iguana lizards (basking on benches, lawns, trees, and humans too lazy or terrified to move them) were only a few of the delights he made available to us.
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
There is more to see than a post has room for!
