17 Mar 2018 (Quito, Ecuador): We made it to Ecuador today! Saying goodbye to Colombia is bittersweet, because that country is amazing, and because it means our trip is entering its third and final leg. On our way to dinner, one of us may have requested that we stop at a chocolate store and he may have gone a little overboard with the free samples, and he may have bought some expensive chocolate. And this may actually be the best chocolate he’s ever tasted in his life. DAMN. It’s complex and smooth and rich, and the flavors are bold but they disappear as quickly as they arrive. It’s just a hell of a bar, and I’m *really* excited to eat a lot more chocolate in this country.
