      ... lucky to arrive at the bus station 5 minutes prior to a scheduled bus to Ambato, a stop over town, known for its fruits and flowers, en route to Banos. The drive to Ambato was long and our designated seats in a rammed bus were at the front. We were the only westerners on the bus and I didn't enjoy shuffling to the back to use the toilet, especially when I realised the toilet was locked and had to go back up to get the key. At every little stop in ...

      We had been convinced by the hostel owner that the best way
      to travel to Cuenca, our next stop, was by mini van. So after breakfast we shared
      a taxi with another couple to the mini van office which cost us $2.50 for our
      share. The mini van ride which took 3 hours cost us $12 each which took us
      through stunning scenery. We firstly drove through the coastal flats of mainly
      sugar cane and bananas before starting ...

Apparently they also put on shows and sort of turn into a bar on some nights, unfortunately we weren't around long enough to see one. ...

      Carnival here means one thing, dodge the water bombs and foam! We had come to Cuenca to see the parades and join in celebrating the beginning of Lent. We had missed the parade in Guayaquil getting there as it finished and were assured that Cuenca was the place to go for the carnival. As we arrived we realised we had missed the parade, although we did see the police band concert, which was good, but the heavy rain made sure that we didn't stick ...

      Back in Cuenca we seetled in to our rented apartment to wait for Christmas, Maria and Tatjanas birtdays and New year. Christina was there to wait for us when we came back and it was really nice to have someone to come home to it was really difficult to say goodbye when we had to leave Cuenca and Christina had to stay behind to finish her dental treatment.

      We spent the time exploring the city and one day we went to Banos which is a small town with natural hot springs ...
