The Humboldt House

In July 2014 my friend Maren Meinhardt and I went to Ecuador in an attempt to follow the path of the German explorer Alexander Von Humboldt. Our trip went well except for one day that went very badly, as I recounted in Guernica magazine, where Maren explained why this 19th century explorer's footsteps are so tempting to retrace, even when it means getting stuck on a volcano and having to be rescued.
