South America Trip [09:22]
In July 2009, Stephen Kitchener and Gareth Watts arrived in Ecuador to begin a 5 month jaunt around South America. Travelling by bus, train, cargo ship, bike and foot, their route had taken them into the Amazon rainforest, across the Atacama desert of northern Chile, the salt flats of Bolivia and to the southernmost tip of Patagonia, with several crossings of the Andes and visits to some of the world's largest metropolises. By the time they left Rio de Janeiro in December, Gareth had shaved off the world's worst beard, Steve had been bitten by a dog, and they had collectively consumed more coca, Inca Cola, steak, alfajores, guinea pig, empanadas, reggaeton and catchphrases than is healthy. It was the best of times, it was the blurst of times.

"Guayaquil - (that's whay-a-kill, canny lad)" Terryback's photos around Guayaquil, Ecuador [00:56]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Guayaquil, Ecuador by TravelPod blogger Terryback titled "Guayaquil - (that's whay-a-kill, canny lad)" Terryback's travel blog entry: "So, Wednesday morning, we're at sea level with Jane still dizzy and wobbly but thankfully not nauseous. We flew to Guayaquil in Ecuador, a place that sounded like it had been discovered by Geordie explorers. The flight, our last on LAN, was on a half-full brand-new Boeing 767, with full entertainment. I started to watch the Golden Compass. I knew the film was two hours long and the flight only one and a half, but I was strangely drawn to it....idiot. I'll have to buy the DVD now. We were met at Guayaquil by our guide William (William, Oliver....they all sound a bit Surrey really. Can't wait to meet Nigel at our next stop). He gave us a quick run down of the city (safe, great river front walk, better than Quito...errr - that's it) then dropped us at the hotel. We were due to meet him the next day for a city tour. We had a long walk that afternoon. The town was really buzzy and typically South American. Manic drivers, taking no prisoners; haughty pedestrians showing no fear and refusing to acknowledge the cars. On every street corner there were old ladies and urchins selling coca cola in plastic cups from 2 litre bottles for 5c. (is that too Dickensian, urchins? Lummee governor, errr, senor, you're a real toff, thankee). Jane points out that there were also lots of smart young men selling ...

Ecuador 2010 Part 3 [06:15]
Part 3 starts at dawn on the Napo River where we see a distant Amazonian umbrellabird followed by an even more distant oriole blackbird. This is the day we returned to Coca where we were to be picked up by a bus and driven a couple of hours to the Shiripuno River, then the 5 hour boat trip downriver to Shiripuno Lodge. There was time for a few beers in Coca where the bar had a tame white-throated toucan and some capuchins. While waiting for the boat we have a plumbeous kite flying overhead. Next morning we found a small snake on the path before coming across a singing musician wren, then the film shows a roosting rufous potoo, olive-backed foliage-gleaner, spotted puffbird, a brief spot-winged antbird, great-billed hermit, golden-green woodpecker and a brief scale-backed antbird. Then it's back to the lodge for lunch and the chance to film some butterflies, which take us to the end of the clip.
