Well, I've found Melbourne - it was hiding in Ecuador. After two weeks at the zoo we had only a week to get ourselves to Lima where we would be meeting Tobi. In case you've ever looked on a map, the distance between Tarqui and Lima is ridiculously enormous. Sadly it means that we have to rush the last part of Ecuador, and skip over the northern part of Peru.
