Ecuador day 1

by Oscar Vargas

Day one was a lot of driving. The team left Quito around 8:30 and got to Cuenca 6:30. That is 10 hours of driving, no collecting, no photos, sorry. The surprise of the day was a nail longer that any of the field assistant fingers !!! just 20 minutes of delay ! Here the photo of the guy fixing the tire with his mom.
