Hello boys and girls my name is Albert and I own the only Brewpub in Ecuador.All the ingredients are British and we do a Scottish heavy ale,an India pale ale,a stout which is better than the usual boring tat and a Czech style lager and to go with it a rare old variety of pub meals.
Oh and I also have a KTM950 Adventure and my shiny new Husqvarna 610 sm for playing the fool in town,I,ve been about a bit in Ecuador Colombia and Peru and in the last couple of months I,ve been visited by two Yamaha Diversions would you belive two BMW1150,s two BMW 1200,S and yesterday two Yamaha TTR600,s and I,ve helped a few get a hold of tyres and bits and bobs as I know the local bike shops and so on.
So if you fancy a pint a bit of scoff or need a bit of advice or just want to make a lost Scotsman happy,drop by to
THE TURTLES HEAD
LA NIÑA 626 Y JUAN LEON MERA
We,re one block from the hotel Marriot
Hope to see you there!!!
It was me and my woman on the TTR´s, top bloke, just got 2x new pirelli MT90s from Cuenca as promised and arranged by Albert. The guys at the KTM dealer were ace and let me use the workshop and tools to change the tyres, sprockets, chains and wheel bearings (which they got me a discount on).
Big thanks to Albert for the assistance and advice, the pub is a bit of an oasis for the aching assed british biker too. Good , warm fire and the feel of a real pub, ideal after lots of miles away from a real boozer!
Again, thanks for the hospitality. Great bar and even better . For those passing thru, its a must stop. Nice atmosphere and great community. Plenty of places to stay in the immediate area. Also home of whats got to be one of the shinniest 950`s in South America....ha ha ha.
I can vouch for the good and food but i never got to meet you Albert.Visited back in Octoberish last year on good advice from Dan.I think you were in Colombia.
Great place !
yep and I think I saw your bike in Popayan in a parking lot in the center of town,it was a silver BM with British reg.no sorry I missed you at the pub hope you,ll drop by again sometime,thegood news is since I posted my details I,ve had a load of bikes drop in and a few more on the way down and I,m enjoying a the bike chat and the company,I going to start a board in the pub with all the passing bikes,SO EVERYONE BRING YOUR BIKES DOWN TO THE PUB SO I CAN GET MY PHOTOS FOR THE BOARD AND YOU GET YOUR 2 MINUTES OF FAME,MAS O MENOS,and to those of you who,ve dropped in many thanks and FELIZ VIAJE
Ah yes Popayan,the place with many banks ! Could have been my bike, although the silver is the duck tape covering up the 'Khalahari yellow' !
I am sure we will visit Quito again someday as we didn't get to visit the Galapogos islands last time round.
All the best to you Albert !
See you when I get there - 2007 sometime. In Mexico today, Guatemala tomorrow, heading south.
Rick McDermed here. I am (and maybe two others if we make contact tonight in San Cristobal de las Casas) crossing into Guat tomorrow at La Mesilla. I think I was just behind you yesterday. I stopped to talk to the German couple in the overland van and they said someone or two from Washington had just left them two minutes ago. I stayed and talked to them for 20 minutes so didn't catch up. Maybe I'll see you on the road. You going thru El Salvador or bypass?
Come on down me old mucker,It,ll be good to get a well informed opinion on the quality of my ale,lets see how well the malt travels,I think you,ll be impressed and if not I,ll get you to do your own brew!!!!!!!
