Baños

all seasons in one day

We arrived in Baños late morning (an hour ahead of schedule thanks to the local failed rally drivers who all seem to work as bus drivers in Ecuador). We dropped our bags - another nice hostel, this one even has electricity) and took a crazy drive on top of a bus around some very bendy roads and through some fairly small tunnels. We stopped off a few times to get our breath back, and just stare in awe at our surroundings.

One of the stop offs was to take a kind of cable car type thing across the valley to hang over one of the waterfalls, I´m pretty sure the screaming set off the nearby volcano which promptly erupted (apprently it faces the other way so is not a danger to the town and if the ground shakes a bit we don´t need to worry)

We then visteted yet another waterfall which thundered down into a vast echoy cauldren the water has carved out of the rock. A hairy clamber through some rock tunnels brings you out just feet from the fall. Incredible.
