Sunday 22 June
Today a quiet day for Dirk and Trudy who are preparing for the coming of the next team.
Time for reorganisation of the stuff in the Landrover.
Well on a superb campsite in the middle of the Ecuadorian rainforest of Guayaquil.
Meanwhile fly Benno and Thecla above the majestic Cotopaxi volcano (5897m).
A beautiful first glimpse of our final destination Ecuador.
Benno and Thecla arrive with a special flight combination from train and plane from Antwerp. After a nice 14 hours flight we land on 17.00 hour (local time).
In the arrival hall is it very busy with locals who are accompanied with banners, balloons and a lot of noise welcome their family and friends. Benno and Thecla were surprised by the amount of people. We recognize Trudy and Dirk quickly and get a warm welcome.
We go with a taxi from the airport to the safe and guarded campsite. There we get surprised.
By the beautiful- and quietness of the campsite. We get surrounded by the for us recognisable noises of the rainforest. Our sleeping place is ready! After nice talking by the fire and a cold drink we go for a sleep.
