Photo of the Day (6/2/06)

Today’s photo comes to us from Tom Taylor’s recent trip to Ecuador.  While it’s not one of his more beautiful shots, it perfectly captures the essence of the brutish bus powering through the rugged muddy terrain that is so typical of this part of Zumbahua, Ecuador.  Waiting in the pouring rain for the bus to come chortling up the hill so you can climb on with the other locals is pure, rough-and-dirty travel at its finest.
