Ecuador

 It is the closest point to the Sun on Earth. Higher than Everest because of its latitude. And I drove on it.

Oh do I ever love Ecuador !
Fuel is cheap.
Fruits are plentiful. 
Coffee is the best.

Ecuador is my favourite country so far ! The highways are the best I have seen in the last 10 countries, the scenery is breathtaking and the ecuadorian are very, very kind human being.

The plan for the day is to run around Quito to find the best espresso available. Yeah, that's how hard my life has become. 

On a side note, it has been six months that I left Atlin, Canada. I am in need of a rest of travelling. I feel terribly homesick. I need a base or something. I need quiet. I only drove 21 000kms with the Jeep since November (and 5000kms with the Benz), but I feel that I have been driving for a long time. Oh, wait. I did.
