Resolution 2: Go To Ecuador

I crossed the Equator 4 times to get to Bellavista, the cloud forest. It is quite an experience to hike 2300 metres above sea level. The trail guide told me it takes at least a month for our body to adjust to the climate in the forest. Hummingbirds and orchids are absolutly beautiful.

I stayed with a local family there. It's so lucky that Maria can speak English. Mates at Spanish school told me their host families only speak Spanish. Maria is a great cook. She makes reeeeeeally good Ecuadorian coffee. I met Elliot and Pete at Maria's. They are from UK. Poor Pete lost both his i-Pod and digital camera. Check out their blog.
