We did however have a beautiful ride before ending up nowhere close to where we supposed to be.

A small town on the top of a cliff face, Mrs.Garmin shows a road down to Jordan, so the Los Santos to Jordan road I imagine would be doable on a DRZ400 or smaller with no house and contents as there is only a swingbridge at the bottom, the road goes down this part of the face.

Staying there the night we decided our game plan to backtrack a little and head down through Jordan the following day

The town surrounded by trees

In the morning we went for a short walk up through farmlands and back roads as we had no rush.

We left late morning .... that is when the fun started
Hey Andi!

Wifey and I found a place similar to this (Los Santos) in northern Peru where we plan to settle and open a Hostel to go with my 'Around the Block Moto Adventures' business. Don't miss it on your way down thru. It is 3 little towns strung together called 'Limon', 'Granadilla', and 'Lucuma'. It is on the climb from Balsas to Celendin. 3,000 mts, but a microclimate in the clouds where bananas and cactus grow side by side!

What way are you crossing Ecuador/Peru?

Mid-Peru about mid-October?

Cheers mate! Great RR's!
