The Thoughts of Man

We have often mentioned the reversal of cosmic energy from Aleph to Yod. We have seen it epitomized in the historical action of Moses. We will again witness it further on when Judas will do what he is bidden, by becoming the instrument of Jesus-Aleph's delivery unto the world of ...

Laguna del cráter: Quilotoa

A travel blog entry by norasfrogblog


... and ladders--a lot of steep inclines on cliffs that you really had to CLIMB....using your hands, and a lot of downward slopes that you were better off sliding on your butt down. It got extremely dry and sandy in some places, so it was easy to slip. We were all really careful though, and eventually made it through. Again, I was by far the slowest (my friends are very experienced hikers, by the way), but they were great, and let me set the pace during the really, really ...

    ... bar` in Baņos. We were given a free (flaming) shot on entrance and it was great to have a dance to some cheesy chart tunes (although some snotty American girl drunkenly asked her friend why we were dressed like gypsy’s!). That night, Joss and Alicia crashed in our hostel room (bizarrely, there are often one or more extra beds in a room) and they enjoyed their first hot shower in 5 weeks! In the morning, I made an absolutely huge plateful of scrambled ...

    Quito - The final stop in South America!

    A travel blog entry by ninaandjack

    ... tons of gold leaf. It is totally mesmerising and really worth a visit. We walk up to the clock tower in the Catedral , up spiral stairs and a vertical ladder. Legs trembling. Worth it – the views are stunning. The city stretches out in front of us, a uniform toy town. The Panecillo stands proud above the city, with the La Virgen visible from miles away. Her arms stretched wide, face sad. Kids run on the hill, multi-coloured paper kites flying high. Their ...

      Back for our 3rd visit in as many weeks as it is just so conveniently located, the staff are great and it's good value. Just an extra bathroom and toilet would put the icing on!

      This was a serviceable hostel that was pretty comfortable (some beds are softer than others) and mostly friendly (the day workers were nice, but the owners´family seemed a bit short). This place is big amongst Europeans it seems. There is a small community kitchen, but you have to buy your own drinking water. Not sure it deserved the rave reviews the guidebooks gave it though...
