    Day 233: Back in the northern hemisphere

    September 2, 2016 in Ecuador ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    We started the day easy and after a good breakfast we set out around 10. The road went up and down all the time. Our leggs are not used to climbing anymore so it was kinda hard. But at noon we reached the equator and made all the pictures. Finally back in the northern hemisphere.

    We found a smaller road as a shortcut for the Pan-Americana. But off course that meant a lot of climbing again. But after 90 km we made it to the town of Ibarra. After dinner we are quickly went to bed. Tomorow is gonna be tough.Read more

    In and Out of Ibarra

    March 26, 2018 in Ecuador

    From Otavalo, we set out for Ibarra, about forty-five minutes away by bus. The plan was to stay one night in Ibarra and then get up early the following morning to cross the border into Colombia. The only real criteria for our lodging for the night was that it was close to the bus terminal, cheap and clean. Well, one out of three isn't the greatest success rate. The hostel looked as if it had barely survived a nuclear attack and the cockroaches were the only survivors, along with the local addicts who use the space as their drug den-cum-hostel. We were surprised that instead of the free toiletries that the hostel didn't supply syringes and a spoon. The large, spacious room couldn't make up for the stains sprayed all over the walls and the dark dank smell in the corridors. The pictures certainly didn't match the dump that we were offered. Although there was very little within the city, despite being one of the largest cities in the north of Ecuador, the streets offered more than being cooped up in the Bates hotel waiting to be the next victim of some psychopathic drug addict. Needless to say, we exited as soon as we could.

    Am Bahnhof von Ibarra

    July 17, 2016 in Ecuador ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    Ja, der Trip heißt ja, mit dem Zug durch Ecuador. Und heute fahren wir zum ersten Mal mit dem Zug, genau genommen mit dem Tren de la Libertad von Ibarra nach Salinas.
    In den letzten Jahren hat Ecuador viel in seine Eisenbahn und in seine Bahnhöfe investiert, das kann man auch deutlich sehen.
