    I have found this site to be helpful. We are on our way to both Ecuador and Peru. This has made me more aware of possible issues. We still plant enjoy ourselves, but know that the possibility of a RUMBLE is out there and have made some pre-emotive arrangements.

    THANKS FOR MAKING THIS SITE AS CURRANT AND CLEAR AS YOU HAVE…
