Arrived back home just before midnight Sunday after two weeks in Ecuador and Roatan. High points were hiking, rafting, and eating extremely delicious trout, low point was getting dosed with neurotoxins from a Portuguese Man-o-war while snorkeling. (Okay, literally the high point was the summit of Rucu Pichincha at 15,413 feet, low point was ~70 ft below sea level while scuba diving.) Weird point was losing my karaoke virginity with (*covers face in shame*) "Total Eclipse of the Heart" in a bar in Tena. Longest time to travel shortest distance was TWO AND A HALF FRAKKIN' HOURS in the immigration line in the Quito airport.

I promise a full and lavish trip report soon (for some value of "soon"). Pictures, too.

ETA: And here is the travelog index:

Part 1: Quito
Part 2: Quito to Tena
Part 3: Tena
Part 4: Papallacta, back to Quito, and on to Roatan
Part 5: Roatan

Sounds fantastic! I've never been to either Ecuador or Roatan, but my folks love Roatan and go there to dive a lot. . .

Pretty sure "Total Eclipse of the Heart" is the best way to pop your karaoke cherry!

Except for the poisoning, it sounds like a great vacation. Anxious to see pictures, but prefer video of the karaoke performance,

Hahaha! karaoke! The shame.....

Ok. I have sang worse songs in that situation. :)

Looking forward to the rest of the story here. The immigration line sounds fun :/ Hope you had some hydration with you!
