Here we are. All packed and ready to go. We both have a couple extra kgs/lbs in our bags, but when we get robbed a couple times, things should be a bit more managable. Yes that's a ukulele in my hands. I'm planning on learning it while we travel to have something to fall back on when the financial markets completely crash, the western world is brought to its knees and I can't get a job when we get back. I'll uke for my meals on the Stockholm subway.
Flight leaves at 6am PST tomorrow (10/1/08), and after a long layover in Atlanta, we'll find ourselves at the mercy of our host in Ecuador, Pancho. After a little worry spell, we finally got word yesterday that he'd pick us up at the airport, with signs. I've always wanted to have a sign waiting for me when I get off the airplane. So that should get our trip off to a nice start.
We'll follow up with another post as soon as we hit an internet cafe...in QUITO! For real...we're going. crazy.
