How to get Peruvian Soles in Quito?

28 Feb 2011

That was the question a few weeks ago. We were heading to the region of Tiwintza for the big river trip. In Ecuador everything goes easy-pesay with dollars, in Peru it?s neuvo soles. So we thought it would be pretty nice to have some, you know pay for food. We didn?t think there would be much cashmachines around. So you just go to the nearest exchange office, no? No, not in Ecuador.

While being in Pasto we get a message from Yu that he’s planning to do a rivertrip from Ecuador to Peru which is pretty well of the beaten track. We met Yu (and Stacey who’s also in) in Tolu with the Couchsurfing meeting Colombia a month or so earlier.
