Resolved Question: Traveling to Ecuador?
Hey, I'm 16 and going to Ecuador an the Galapagos in April 2014 for 10 days. Does anyone have any advice about it?
I applied for my passport last week, so in fine with that.
My other big concern is if iron supplements are widely available in the area. I'm severely anemic, and I was planning on bringing my pills from home, but I just wanna know if something happens to them, I can easily buy them there.. Probably a stupid question, but hey a lot of Ecuador is at high altitudes, so I don't think anemia is that common there.
Also, when and which vaccines should I get? I have already gotten my flu shot this year, I got my meningitis booster in August, and I got the HPV shots about 3 years ago i think.
Any other advice? Thanks! (:

Resolved Question: African slaves lost their
Very few descendants of African slaves in the Americas know the name or ethnicity of their African ancestors.
The vast majority of them bear the name of the slave masters both in North and South America
Curiously, there are dozens of place names of African origin in the America.
The word Mandinga is disproportionately represented in Latin America. It appears in place names in almost all Latin American countries.
Some examples are:
Mandinga, Ancash in Peru;
Cordillera Mandinga in Bolivia;
Laguna Mandinga, Vera Cruz or Mandinga Oaxaca Mexico;
Rio Mandinga, El Salvador;
Mandingo Sailing in Costa Rica;
Congo River in Panama;
El Congo in Venezuela;
Mandinga Airport in Colombia
Mandinga, Metropolitana in Chile
Mandinga (l) Cienfuegos, Cuba
Congo River in Ecuador
Isla or Cerro Mandinga in Panama
Mondongo Rocks or Island in the USA
Paraiba Congo in Brazil,
Africa Esmeraldas in Ecuator;
Mandinga, Distrito Nacional, Dominican Republic
Mandinga in Santa Barbara, Honduras
Mandinga is a locality in Guantánamo, Cuba,
Cap Mandigue in Haiti
Congo Hills or El Congo in Nicaragua
Quebrada Mondongo, Panama
Arroyo Mondongo in Mexico
Why are the words Mandinga, Mondongo, Congo widespread in place names in Americas?

Resolved Question: Can anyone offer advice
I am quitting my job in January and buying a one-way ticket to Guatemala.
I plan on spending at least 6 months (not definite time limit) travelling around Central and South America. I'm a 30 year old female who'll be travelling alone.
The countries I would definitely like to visit are Costa Rica, Bolivia and Ecuador. The main things I'm interested in doing are visiting national parks, chilling out on beaches, some hiking, a bit of nightlife, beautiful scenery and visiting remote villages.
I also plan on doing some voluntary work in Costa Rica and Bolivia while I'm there. I don't really intend on visiting Brazil as would rather save that for another trip.
Time isn't really a factor as it's a one-way ticket, so am fine to get longhaul buses where necessary. I speak some Spanish but it's only at intermediate level.
Does anyone have any suggestions of a itinerary, taking in the above countries and maybe some others you'd recommend?
I have a Lonely Planet book on South America but it's all a bit overwhelming!
Many thanks :-)
