We reached 20,000km just south of Salvador on the Brazilian coast. Idyllic sounding, it was actually the rainiest day of our cycle trip around South America so far, and we only stopped for a few minutes to celebrate.
“EC-UA-DOR, ESCHUCAME”. We crossed into Ecuador to the sound of Sash booming on our I-pods. With its friendly atmosphere and stunning scenery, our eighth country of the trip is more than living up to expectations.
Leaving Peru, it was hard to believe that the last seven weeks of cycling covering over 2,000km was just one country such were our variety of experiences. We pedalled into Ecuador with memories we would never forget.
In the blistering heat of the Sechura Desert we celebrated cycling 10,000km since we left Rio de Janeiro. In the process we have survived the traffic in Buenos Aires, cycled up the Andes in the snow and sweated it out in the Atacama Desert.
