I have spent the last several hours attempting to plan a vacation. Since it's not working out so well... I decided to relive my previous adventures and found some really great pics from when I went to Ecuador in March of 2009.
These are a very very small fraction of the trip-- but it was, sincerely, the greenest place I've ever seen.
And, at night, the stars actually appeared in relief. In the states, they always seem 2D. Alas- no photo would do those justice.
