Yasuni, here we come

The world's largest (and possibly ugliest) rodent, the capybara, is staying in our hotel in Coca, Ecuador. We've also been visited by a couple of squirrel monkeys. We're staying overnight in this overgrown oil town to wait for our contact at the station to sort out the right paperwork - i.e. make sure the oil mongers who control the road know we've got legit passports and yellow fever shots. So we'll be getting picked up tomorrow around 9am, taking a 1 1/2 hour ride to a canoe, cross the river for 10 minutes and then it's another 1 1/2 hours to the station. Rainforest, huzzah. 

We'd love to hear from you
