In October 2002 I travelled to Ecuador. I had just enough money to sleep in small hostels and to eat. I carried a bag with two old Nikon FM2 cameras and another one with rolls of Kodak Tri-x film. A small backpack with some clothes was all my luggage. For about two months, using the rickety buses on mostly dirt roads, I travelled through part of the Andes, the northern border area with Colombia, and finally travelled to the Amazon.
