The continuation of my journey from Latacunga to Riobamba by train.Read More
I am Peter Reto Lauffer, a Tour Operator living in Quito, Ecuador. I am organising railway journeys in Latin America and hopefully soon worldwide; hence, you will find quiet a lot of railway stuff in this site. Another passion of me is traveling to interesting regions where really something can be discovered.
Beside traveling and trains I enjoy taking photos on the street, from nature or whatever comes in front of my cellphone lens. I am also interested in what’s going on in the world and in Ecuador, but I don’t have a TV and don’t watch the news. Watching TV is a waste of time for me. I like to read “Le Monde Diplomatique”, “The Nation” and the NZZ to be informed.
All these and much more reflects my blog. Thank you very much for checking it out!
