Baños, Ecuador

I´m back from the jungle...

Hey everyone, I´m back from the jungle, and it was a blast. I´m not currently on a computer that will allow me any photo uploads, but I wanted to write a little anyway...I´ll add more to this entry and photos later, I´m pretty tired! It was really cool. We drove a couple hours out of Baños to a place run by a family. It was really rustic...mosquito nets and beds under thatched roofs. On the way out we stopped at a monkey sanctuary. I got to hold monkeys...they´re really friendly (pictures will follow)! We went out to the place in the jungle, and hiked up to this amazing lookout, with hammocks! We hung out there for a bit, shot a blow gun...which I was pretty damn good at! Then we had some really good spaghetti, with shrimp and beef. Last night we went out and looked for Crocodiles. We got to see a few...pretty cool for sure. After that, we had a beer and all turned in for the night under our mosquito nets. There was a huge thunderstorm last night by the way, and it was really cool to watch that, and the fireflies buzzing all over....quite the show! This morning, they served a really good breakfast and we hiked out to a waterfall. It was amazing...comparable to Multnomah Falls in height, but with water warm enough you could swim under it, which I surely did! Those are the main highlights from the jungle tour, I´ll add more later with my pictures.
