More on Baños...

Today I got up early and headed over to the tour agency because we were going to go repelling down a waterfall....yes, that´s what I said. We got all suited up and headed out, in a rocking 1978 Chevy Nova (just like my Uncle Bob´s but tan instead of silver). I was the first to go down both waterfalls. The first one was about 50 feet (18 meters or so), just for practice. That was intimidating enough! The second was about 150 feet (around 50 meters) and amazing! There´s pictures of both for you to enjoy! I also uploaded pictures from the jungle tour and the ATV adventure, including me on a swing going out over a cliff that overlooks the city of Baños. It was quite a couple of days for me to test my nerves about heights for sure!
Tomorrow morning we are heading to Cuenca, Ecuador. It´s supposed to be a nice colonial town with some cool things to see. I think we´ll only be there, at most, for a couple days. Then off to Peru. Hopefully we´ll get a direct bus from Cuenca into Peru. That would be safer and much less hassle than walking across the border and then getting a new bus. I´ll keep you all posted as I find out information!
I have to say that every place I have visited in Ecuador is absolutely amazing! I don´t even think my pictures are doing it justice. There´s so much to do, in such a small country! Everything, from big city to some of the most beautiful beach, to the coastal Andes Mountains, to high-altitude and cool-climate cities to the Amazon! Pretty much everything you could imagine in one small package!
Well, that´s all for now. Enjoy the pictures!
