Hi

Bit of a late night last night, few people over for dinner, much fun. Clearing alway any left over food was easy enough - take it a small distance from home and throw it into the undergrowth for the animals. As a result I managed to see a Badger last night, that's the second one this week.

I have a question, does anyone know the easiest / cheapest way to get to Ecuador from Rio de Janeiro? A quick look at a map of the world suggests that walking is out of the question.

I've had a quick look and I reckon you should change your airline tickets for Panama via Miami or Madrid. Once in Panama, steal a boat or construct a rudimentary raft and sail or paddle south out of the Panama Canal then follow the coast down to Ecuador. That would be the most exciting way!

Sorry - that alternate route should have been to Lima (Peru) Via Madrid (Spain) and sail up the coast.

I'll get a book on a sailing out of the library then, how hard can it be?

Looks like you could take the bus from Rio to Ecuador but it would take days of straight driving! No better way to see the continent I suppose... If you can change your ticket (they may not refund but allow you to change) then it's about the same price to Rio as it is to Quito via NY or Miami.
