Love that picture of the "log boat"!

As always, your pics are great. That "log boat" one is unreal! It looks like it used to be some other kind of boat (maybe passenger?) and then found new life as a mule hauling wood!

Are you going to Huaraz?

Amazing tire mileage ...

Seems almost unbelievable to get 18,000 km out of a set of tires - especially given how loaded your bike is and where you've been on your journey.

You're at close to 10,000 feet in Quito. Are you feeling the altitude?
