In the Ecuadorian Amazon, I found an ancient mystery

I’m in the Ecuadorian Amazon and I’m lost. I missed my stop, sheepishly had to exit the van in the middle of nowhere, and now I’m sitting on a bench alone, amid vine-covered trees, leaves bigger than my torso, hundreds of busy ants and zero phone service. Already this week’s landslides had derailed my travel plans, and now, this spontaneous detour. Defeated, I peer for the next bus as a scrawny dog saunters over — the town’s welcoming committee. “When’s the bus coming?” I ask. The jungle pup grins. My question hangs in the air unanswered. It’ll be the first of many on this trip.

This is the perpetually mossy nook of Morona Santiago, a jungle province in the southeast of Ecuador. I’m here to explore the nearby petroglyphs — ancient illustrations carved into stone — which have prompted local murmurs since their discovery.

The nordic people were free to travel in the Scandinavian countries including Finland. No passports or travel documents were needed. The freedom still today is the most important for the Scandinavians from that epoch. Freedom is to travel, learn to know new countries and other languages, and meet different people and cultures. He wishes the new generations would have the same possibilities experiencing all that what makes you feel free, and building a strong personality. -
