Tolls in Ecuador
In Colombia, many paved roads have toll boths, but motorcycles get to bypass in the extreme right motorcycle-bicycle bypass.
In Ecuador, between the border and Quito - 4 tool booths I believe - 20 centavos each. To a Gringo, its not worth the effort of stopping, finding nuetral, maybe putting down the kickstand, pulling off the gloves to reach into a pocket for a $1 bill or a pocket full of change just to pay 20 cents. To an Ecuadorian though - maybe mucho dinero. I lost 80 cents when checking my map; the coins fell out of the map case where I slipped it for a quick getaway. I probably made the day for the old guy sitting on the bench at the bus stop where I dropped it.
