Ok JD. We got your full attention eh?
As soon as we crossed into Ecuador the cops had the streets in Tulcan shut down. There was a bicycle race going on. We split a $2.50 plate of lunch, then took the suggested detour on our 250cc SuperSherpas.
The 1st part was paved, then greasy mud covered cobble up past the garbage dump.
Within our first 10km of being in the country we are already offroading !
With all the rain lately, we have decided to cool it on the backroads until things dry up. Soon we were back to the highway as the bikes whizzed by with police escort.
Old Mr. Sun popped out for a while.

Stay tuned for the $7 hotel (3.50$ per person!) and the huge $2 dinners...
