    ... bought the bus tickets for the day before instead of the day of the flight!! This meant getting a bus at 1pm after the 11am bus was cancelled last minute. I had felt nauseous during the night. Alan had been suffering with the runs and vomited that morning. Luckily we weren't caught out on the bus but it wasn't the most pleasant journey!! We arrived to Guayaquil around 10pm that night and went straight to our ...

Luckily for me, my dorm mate ...

    Today we crossed the border into Peru. We were warned this could be a lengthy process. In the end, it took about two hours. First was a stop for the truck to be cleared and then we had to stop for the passengers to be cleared. All went without a hitch. Quite a long drive today.
