Flag of Ecuador  ,
Tuesday, August 14, 2007

Whey-hey! I'm off to the Galapagos, tomorrow. On a luxury boat, sailing round for 8 days, starting on Thursday.
So that's good.
Meanwhile, there are some things I need to know about Quito. I've seen lots of dogs, but not cats. Por que no? Donde estan los gatos?
Also, the popular Ecuadorian beer, Pilsener, is advertised by two scantily-clad, large breasted women playing cards, and the slogan "I play from 40. It's unique in the world, like my Pilsener". Now, obviously, the large breasted ladies are an imperative part of beer advertising - I wouldn't dream of buying a beer that wasn't so endorsed - but, the slogan confuses me. What, exactly, is she playing off?
Ah well, never mind - I'm going to the Galapagos, so what do I care?

Are you a vegetarian?
Best not to think where the cats are ;-)

'Pilsener, is advertised by two scantily-clad, large breasted women playing cards, and the slogan 'I play from 40. It's unique in the world, like my Pilsener''

Does the slogan need a meaning :-P

Enjoy the tortoises...

Re: Are you a vegetarian?
As I'm dossing about the house for a couple of weeks I can indulge in following your steps. Marvellous!

Glad you've made it and are seeing interesting animals already...though I am a little worried about the recurring donkey pictures...what with you travelling alone...

Soooooooooo jealous about you going to the Galapagos, but, as Loz so rightly says, I have plenty to occupy myself at the moment.

Some piccies of some giant tortoises and iguanas please (they don't have donkeys on Galapagos do they?)!
