You probably remember that in mid-June we endured 30 hours of bus rides to go from Olón, Ecuador, to Lima, Peru. Both of us were dreading the ride. I was probably even more reluctant than Tigger since our last really long bus ride was a very rough experience. The ride felt a little less daunting, though, as soon as we boarded and got settled in a bit. Tigger quickly decided this was “the coolest thing I’ve ever seen” and easily forgot that the next 27 hours of his life would be spent in this bus, minus the two border crossings and one extra random Customs search (as we passed through a more dangerous section of northern Peru) while grasshoppers pounced all over our bodies.
