I must make a note about the fact that we are not American, Canadian maybe and again not so much...

“The history of interactions among disparate peoples is what shaped the modern world through conquest, epidemics and genocide. Those collisions created reverberations that have still not died down after many centuries, and that are actively continuing in some of the world's most troubled areas.”

Thank you. Don't worry. You will be amazed by the fact that most of latin americans can see the differences between people and their governments (and foreign politics for that matter). You will experience warm welcome, hospitality, pride of our countries and their beauties and find a very large number of people ready to offer help and what ever you guys may need in your journey.

Safe travels.


P.S.: my bad... I should look carefully so I could know where you guys are from...
