Having developed my first serious stomach issue I spent the rest of the evening chatting with Phil and chilling in the room. With the stomach pains pretty much putting me out (I'm sure this is a new life threatening disease that the world has yet to find a cure for....)

    of Ecuador. After a delicious breakfast of eggs, toast, hash browns, fruit, etc., we wandered around the colonial center of Cuenca.

    ... The dentist ushered me in, cleaned my mouth and piece of tooth up and simply shoved it back in again! I was expecting a long, painful and expensive dentist visit but much to my relief all was well - phew.

    Having regrouped over what had become lunch we then headed to a wonderful flower market. Lots of fab colours and smells. We bought some to brighten up our hostel room as we've ...
