Not much has been going on of excitement to anyone but me I guess. So a couple of pictures is all I have to offer. 

Ecuador has been proving to have some very beautiful camp spots on the side of the road. Although to camp at a hostel is only around $3 - $7 over a week or a month it all adds up. So being on the verge of having nothing left. I have been free camping as much as possible. 

This was an abandoned garage. I think someone in the big houses on the hill must have seen my cooking flame, for at about 12.30 in the night 3 cops showed up. Lucky for me they did not care I was there and I was allowed to stay. Moving in the middle of the night puts me in a shocking mood.

This is 3 German guys I meet. They brought this old V.W bus in Chile and are headed up to Colombia, then back down into Brazil. 

The greatest satisfaction you can obtain from life is your pleasure in producing, in your own individual way, something of value to your fellowmen. That is creative living!

When we consider that each of us has only one life to live, isn’t it rather tragic to find men and women, with brains capable of comprehending the stars and the planets, talking about the weather; men and women, with hands capable of creating works of art, using those hands only for routine tasks; men and women, capable of independent thought, using their minds as a bowling-alley for popular ideas; men and women, capable of greatness, wallowing in mediocrity; men and women, capable of self-expression, slowly dying a mental death while they babble the confused monotone of the mob?

For you, life can be a succession of glorious adventures. Or it can be a monotonous bore.

Take your choice!

Neil Gaiman.
