    Could you do a segment on fishing opportunities in Ecuador and where and type of fishing ….fly….casting. still fishing and the type of baits and fish caught….just off shore or in a boat and how available are boats? Also any idea of how it compares to fishing in Costa Rica?
    I look forward to your response.
    Thanks for all you do!

    Great seeing these “street views”! I’d like to see streets around the colonial city, maybe some “inside the mall” video’s. A walk through the park.

    Hello Folks Enjoyed the trip through Cuenca , Hung on to my hat at first, thought we were speeding. notice you ran an amber light . Most young men do. No problem. I just made me hang on a little harder. I`m thinking….. does this young man know where he is going?….Must…. It was a fun ride we need more of this to experience on FB.
    Keep up the good work , looking forward to more of your guided tours around the city and out in the country too.
    As ever Eric.

    that was fun Brian. Even though i was in Cuenca before, i could not tell if you were
    driving eastbound or westbound? I love the absent vision pollution that is so rampant in
    north america (billboards) ; just saw 2 on the center part of the road and they were quite small
    and unobtrusive.

    I enjoyed the scenes, but, must say, that the music was annoying so that I muted it. How about some narration? Andean music would be good, too.
