I am working on Clare and Renato’s full blog post of their gorgeous Brazil destination wedding as fast I can, while I’m still in Sao Paulo, but in the mean time I figured you can be entertained by some pictures of me hanging out with blue footed boobies and iguanas in the Galapagos Islands as well as crazy stories about taxi drivers in Ecuador.
Taxi Truth #1: I was almost late to the airport leaving Quito because my taxi driver pulled off to the side of the road to a sunglasses vendor and tried on every pair of shades he had to offer.
Taxi Truth #2: Ash and I fully witnessed a man with a cell phone jerry-rigged to his steering wheel with duck tape so he could play solitaire while he weaved through mad traffic. And you know what, I didn’t even feel like we were going to crash once.
Taxi Truth #3: Our driver in Mindo was taking us to our tubing adventure. We were all sitting in the back of the truck. He slowed down in the middle of the street. And then stopped and rolled down his window and called over a friend. So that his friend could give him a glass of beer that he chugged down in about 30 seconds flat. And then we continued on our merry way.
