Falling Rock Signs in Ecuador

General San Martín had a dream: one great unified big Latin-American country.
But it came out an illusion and he died in France, embittered.
Today the results of our fieldwork could perhaps
give him some consolation : Argentina, Chile, Ecuador,
Mexico and Peru
all plant very similar warning signs.
All these countries find each other at the high end
in our boulder count
, with one country bringing together in one sign even more than the 42 boulders we see here!
They have also in common that the warning sign features a vehicle often equipped with lights
and a license plate, sometimes even with a driver (see Argentina).
We are eagerly waiting for samples found in Columbia and Venezuela. Someone should go there for some sampling.
