Me: Wow, what are those things?
Tomas: Those are radio towers, put up a few years ago by... (scrunches up eyes for english adjective, then shurgs) Christians. To convert people. It sends out very, very strong signal. Now every little village in Ecuador, if they have a radio, can hear these crazy people. No other radio station reaches as far into the jungles and mountains.
(The things are fucking huge.)
Me: Hey Misha, what are we going to do if we meet missionaries while we're traveling.
Misha: Well, it depends on where we are. If we're in the city, we'll line them up against a wall and shoot them. If we're in the jungle, we'll drown them in a river.
(Laughter all around!)
