A straightforward account of a Couple's wacky voyage - cum - pilgramage from California to Ecuadar in the late 70's as seen through the eyes of the young wife. Full of local descriptions of Mexico, Central and South America, it combines a factual chronicle of their trip with a rich retelling of the human side with all of its foibles. It is not only about where they went but even more about how they went, but even more about how they went, how they managed to arrive. A "how-not-to" book. Great fun . . .
