What I'm about to say may seem like the most obvious thing in the world to you. Honestly, it always has for me. Yet, it can be easy to get lazy, impatient, to cut corners. So, just hear me out. Boil your water. Tap water that is. When in developing countries, even when in cities. No, . . .
http://youtu.be/vRXmLhRPOBE The Quilotoa Loop is one of Ecuador's biggest attractions in the region near Quito. Quilotoa is the most Western volcano in the Ecuadorian Andes. Today, everyone heads there to see the emerald crater lake—the laguna. The loop is a circuit that many travellers choose to . . .
It's now been a week since I arrived in Ecuador. Though I'm still dipping my toes into the culture here (culinary and otherwise), I can already tell that life as a vegan or vegetarian here is tough. Or, at least, it can be. On the surface, it shouldn't be that hard. I mean, we're in a country . . .
After on-and-off vegetarianism for several years, I finally decided to commit fully to veganism a couple of weeks ago. Suddenly, one evening, it just hit me that I needed to do it and it needed to be now—not a gradual transition, but right now and forever. Earthlings may not have played into that . . .
I've been struggling for a couple of weeks now. I don't know where to go, what to do, or what to write. Maybe it's something to do with the drastic changes to my routine and the limbo I've been stuck in, but I think the weather is just getting to me. . . .
