Historia y presente de la Plaza Dos de Mayo, Lima [06:39]
La histórica Plaza Dos de Mayo es un homenaje a los combatientes sudamericanos que vencieron a la escuadra española que amenazaba con conquistar nuevamente América. Un honor a aquellos hombres y mujeres que lucharon por la afirmación de la independencia y soberanía americana. Los colectivos 'Lima la Única' y 'Lima Antigua' realizarán el evento 'Tómate una foto en la Plaza Dos de Mayo antes de que desaparezca' como respuesta al estado decadente de la misma desde hace décadas. Se celebrará el evento este domingo 15 de enero en la Plaza Dos de Mayo a las 10:30am. Están todos cordialmente invitados.

THE GRINGO 8/8: Nazca Lines, Lima, Quito & Bogotá [09:37]
In the final episode of THE GRINGO, I jump on a plane to see the incredible NAZCA LINES of Peru... massive pictograms drawn centuries ago whose shapes are only visible from the air. Then I head up to LIMA in Peru and check out the National Museum, The Inquisition Museum and The Catacombs before head up to QUITO in Ecuador via the amazing 'DEVIL'S NOSE' railway - a journey taken sitting on the roof of the train. I take time out to visit the equator memorial and head up to BOGOTÁ in Colombia - at the time of filming, the kidnap capital of the world (a title that's now gone to Iraq). After all that, I rush back to DUBLIN in Ireland just in time to catch the second half of my cousin's wedding.

The Onzole River Project - Santo Domingo de Onzole [07:06]
"Living in the jungle communities in the Onzole River valley in Ecuador are 500 descendants of African slaves who, legend has it, escaped from Colombia many generations ago. They lived in secrecy for many years, only making contact with the outside world a decade ago due to health problems that were beginning to develop in the community. They have been mostly ignored by the Ecuadorian government and their way of life would be considered quite primitive by most North American standards. Santo Domingo de Onzole, surrounded on all sides by the lush greenery of the Ecuadorian jungle, is isolated but beloved, welcoming, and vibrant." - The Onzole River Project For more information, please visit: onzole.org Video and photography by Chris Tse with files from Nikki Horne Translated by Nikki Horne Filmed on Nikon D5000 with Nikkor 18-55mm lens and Pentax something or other Tripod: crates and buckets of varying sizes

See the sun rise, the sun set and 180 degrees of ocean view all day long. This property is one of the best locations in quiet Ancon, Ecuador. The main lot is about 10000 square feet, with about 3000 square feet construction. The historic home is the typcial style built by the Englishmen who came to Ancon decades to work in the petroleum industry. It features high ceilings, wood floors, large rooms, glass pane windows and a wrap around porch. Most of the interior is in very good condition. This includes living room, dining room, breakfast kitchen, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and den. The original eat in kitchen could use remodeling and the exterior a facelift (new coat of paint, landscaping). With the low cost of labor here in Ecuador those upgrades are well worth the investment. As a bonus the owner is willing to sell the adjoining 10000 square foot vacant beachfront lot, bringing the total land area to about 20000 square feet. If you want quiet small town life, with excellent views and easy access to shopping, dining and other ammenities, look to Ancon.
