If you are looking for an exciting/stressful time, take an Ecuadorian bus. I think of all the places Matt and I have traveled, Ecuador has the scariest bus scene. In just one minute yesterday, I was stepped on (with a high heel!), elbowed a woman in her face (which she yelled at me for bending her glasses), and a cute native woman was knocked on her bum while the grass she was carrying on her back went all over the floor. All of this occurred right before I exited the bus... needless to say I was rattled and a little stressed out at class last night. But I still love them! And am thankful I don´t have to walk to school 4 times a day now. So holler for public transportation systems, even if they are terrifying.
