... get arrested and hung out to dry if it was one of us. So after sleeping most of our Saturday, we decided to spend the rest of the weekend seeing the much praised city of Cuenca. I am going to be straight with you. It's not great. Apart from the storm-dodging, it is very overpriced. There are no incredible attractions. And the pollution, well, we spent most of our time trying to breathe. Oh and we visited a museum about hats. Leaving this post on a high though, ...

The next day we decided to visit one of the butterfly farms in the town, which was really cool, the owner gave us a lesson ...

... magical.  Boulders lined the ocean floor, with fish everywhere: big and small.  I chased around some marine life with my camera, desperate to capture such exotic beauty.  I wanted to preserve the incredible experience.  I swam with a diamondback stingray, streamer hogfish, damselfish, different wrasses, convict tangs, an assortment of grunt species, and two sea turtles: a green sea turtle and a hawksbill.  My greatest experience was with ...

... bumps, got taxi to our hostel then met Marieke, our friend from Montañita for dinner then headed for bed after. Slept incredibly badly, probably the altitude and the permanently itchy mozzie bites I got in Montañita. Annette and I went for breakfast in the place called Wild Horse Cafe which was run by Americans and had mostly American customers. It seems that, like Florida, Cuenca is a popular American retirement destination. Had porridge for the first time I left the ...
