ET005 - Love and the Devil's Nose

By Eric Trules

Alausi, Ecuador. 2003. I married for the first time at age 55. Also in 2003. I married an Indonesian girl from Sumatra who I met in Bali, who was 31 years younger than I was and who spoke almost no English. Go figure, huh? But in the summer of 2003, a few months after we tied the knot in LA, we took our first extended trip together, to Machu Picchu in Peru, and up the Avenidas de los Volcanos, along the mountainous spine of Peru and Ecuador. For 2 months, we traveled by all-night buses with "los indiginos", the local natives, dressed in colorful sarapes and gray bowler hats. I loved it. My wife hated it. And this trip was... as much about our new marriage as it was about South American culture and adventure. Enjoy and Happy Trails... Full show notes:
