Bill's Big Trip "Imagine there's no countries, it isn't hard to do, nothing to kill or die for. Imagine all the people living life in peace. Imagine all the people sharing all the world. I hope someday you'll join us and the world will live as one." John Lennon

ECUADOR | Sunday, 15 June 2014 | Views [227]

It was about an eight or nine hour bus ride from Quito to the starting point for the rain forest trip. From there it was about  1 1/2 hour boat ride to the Samona lodge. The lodge is pretty rustic,(see pictures, I haven't figured out captions). Nice group of people from Belgium Germany Ireland Australia Spain Canada. I apologize if I missed someone. we would hike and use the boats to check the various rivers and lakes looking for birds snakes or monkeys. The wildlife spotted were the woolly monkey clown monkey white face monkey and the red holler monkey(my apologies to my monkey friends). Also saw the Cayman (see picture )the Anaconda( see picture )and the two toed sloth (he was too quick for me I didn't get the picture). Closely check the water picture with trees, look closely you'll see a doctor from Belgium sitting in the tree. We left him there for about 15 or 20 minutes ,he really wanted to feel the rain forest , I guess I can't blame him. Tonight another eight hour bus ride takes me south to the city of Cuenca Ecuador.

About lipowcan8

A quick recap. I visited 19 countries in 212 days, traveled 46,000 miles by air,15,000 miles by land and spent about $25,000. My feet got beat up a few times and I twisted my ankle a couple of times.  No plane, train, car, bus, tuk tuk or taxi mishaps, not even a fender bender. I wasn't threatened or harassed and amazingly enough I didn't lose anything. It's hard to believe seven months have passed. As I said in my first entry.....a wonderful way to celebrate 60 years of living. It sure was!
