Ecuador: Farewell

Today, I crossed the frontier to Peru, leaving behind the marvellous landscapes of Ecuador.
Amongst the many impressive, lasting reminiscences, I will forever remember the time at the foot of the volcanoes, the Cotacachi, the Cotopaxi, the Tungurahua, and the crossing of the Oriente, my first encounter with the rainforest.
I cycled in this country for 1310km, climbing 24.390 altitude meters.
Most of this distance together with Andy whom I’d like to thank for his refreshing, humorous company. And I thank the kind and interesting people I’ve met and those who helped me along the way, the shop owners who had suelto (change money), the children for their laughter and happiness, the road acquaintances who responded my greeting.
