Is it boring looking at other peoples holiday snaps?
My quick survey suggests a definate 50/50 split.
I personally like to look at others pics, especially of far away places, I like to imagine being there and the way the happy-snapper felt while taking them - awe, amazement, excitement. I look longingly, usually, so it was nice to be on the other end for a change! So if you don't like looking at them, Dear Reader, avert your sensitive eyes now. For here is some more of Ecuador. You will see a lot of buildings in my collection - coming from such a young country (meaning in the western way of course) I was in awe of grand old architecture. And church architechture is so deliciously creepy isn't it? Oh, and in my six and a bit weeks away I took nearly 2000 photos so thank your lucky stars I can only be bothered uplading 7 right now. (And hey, click on them to super-size your viewing pleasure! You know you want to...)
After leaving Quito, on our way to the Amazon Basin. Check out that snow capped mountain. I mean really, can you even believe it? Now, I certainly haven't checked the facts, but our lovely South African truck driver said it is the closest mountain to the sun, not the largest in the world, obviously, but a very big bloody mountain very close to the equator, and therefore technically closest to the sun in measure. Very cool.
Our jungle guide Fausto and his Uncle, the Shaman. Beautiful men, both. A treasure of knowledge indeed. And no, they don't actually have glowing red eyes, they aren't that special. Or are they? Guess I should have fixed that in photoshop before posting. Oh well.
The Rio Napo, the Rio Amazonas largest tributary - just beautiful. Just look at that cloud forest, Dear Reader, isn't it amazing?
I know. That was 8 pics. Thought I would sneek one more in while you weren't looking. Insert evil laugh here. *Sigh*
