Amazing. What can I say ! I have across 6 continents of running in world run 1 & 2 seldom seen such varaiety in nature.
Instead of writing a long report I'll let the pictures speak (for now ;-). If you want a bit of background on this fascinating contry please see yesterdays report, www.worldrun.org/report_day.php?day=2011-10-12 And as you can see if you look closely at todays pictures, its not a complete 'fairytale': Equador is one of the contries in Latin America which struggles the most w. enviromental issues; mainly the impact of deforestaion, mining & the hunt for oil (things which we all have a part in as long as we overuse the products where ever we live in the world). One can only hope sincerely that this "ecological mega-diversity spot" remains one of the highlights of our planet as it is now.
Besides this - please enjoy the picture series from today. I can guarantee that I enjoyed the run and the experiense like seldom before !
