While we are idling in Swisswassi waiting for the road conditions to improve in Peru cannot let those cameras getting rusty. Blaze and the sunset are always a good theme.

We woke up to strong fish smell. It came from a pack of dead fishes on the shore, just 50 m from us. The birds were having a feast on the water and on the [...]

While we planned to stay few days anyways at Swisswassi campground, we can change the reason of stay to 'stranded'. So the Peru floods took out several roads and bridges lately and therefore there is [...]

The excitingly good roads of Ecuador end at Riobamba and the drive to Cuenca through the Andes will continue on ‘regular’ two lane road. It’s asphalt, but there are potholes and a bit more attention [...]
