Blake will be without internet for around two weeks, so what follows is the extremely paraphrased transcript of a phone conversation I (Brett his brother) had with him today. So enjoy, and embrace the text's brevity as an opportunity to fill in the blanks with your own wacky ideas of what Blake is encountering in Ecuador.
"Ecuador has been great, currently I am in the jungles south of Quito, and have been staying in a hostel in Misahualli which surprisingly is home to a Tex-Mex resturant, stories to follow. Luckily it is the dry season so the mosquitoes are non existent. The only thing more plentiful than the monkeys are the guitars."
