Wish that was an option but its not. I fly discounted, not free - discounted open jaw tickets are a little more expensive than normal full airfare. I am looking for a country that is centrally located where I can hit the neighbors for a couple of days each. Possibilities so far - Colombia, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique. Really not wanting to fly more than about 14 hours one way to maximize my time, so that leaves out most of Asia this trip (plus I have spent plenty of time all over Asia)...


Took me about 48 hours to get from my home in eastern WA state to finally land at Windhoek, Namibia....layovers in Seattle (4 ish) London (7 ish) and Jo'berg (5 ish). Although Namibia is well worth the effort to get too...South Africa might be less expensive than Namibia to travel through however. You might have better connections than what I can get from out here. I'd say Colombia and Ecuador would be excellent. Nice to hear from you after all this time!!!

I think visiting Guayaquil might be a nice rememberance - as strange as that may seem...


I never met him there but he did stay with me in NYC a few times. If you remember the planning of the visit back then, I booked my tickets, flew to Guayaquil but the party was postponed so I headed straight to Quenca (worth a visit) and missed the town that he lived in which was Manta.

But my time in Guayaquil was good. I found it mellow and less criminal than Quito. Also cheap hotels in Quito do not have windows. It was the only time in my life where I was frightened of a hotel as the oxygen left at 3am and me and others ran to the lobby so we could breathe. But the Riena Victoria pub (reccomended by Jefe) is worth it, though it is in a skanky area and is one of those places where walking to and from the bar was not recommended by the bartender.


I liked Cuenca better because it was in the mountains and away from the malaria and humidity and had a less criminal elements.

I remember that too. The green is a bit easier on the eyes than ye olde black bfc.
