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.
