Nice place

Very friendly and helpful owners, clean, comfortable beds, well decorated and cozy. We liked having a room with a balcony, lots of light. We were looking forward to having a bath, but when we tried to draw our first bath in months, the water was cold even though only the hot tap had been on. The wifi was not very good, even when we sat next to the router. Also, it was a little noisy at night, a dog kept barking for hours before daylight.

The 6 hours bus ride from Gualaquiza to Cuenca was an adventure; we had rain, thick clouds, and a small landslide-roadblock with large rocks blocking the road. The younger men got out of the bus and worked together to move the rocks over to the side. The road was only paved for the first 15 minutes, so it was a long bumpy ride into the …

... ically, on the anti-slip board, taking a chunk of skin out of his shin. There were a few expletives and a short delay before we started our 'experience'.

The Turkish steam bath was surprisingly warm and smelt good thanks to the bunches of herbs. We spent 30 minutes in the bath with one shower break before we were moved on to blue mud therapy pool. The mud in this pool was supposed to cleanse the skin so we liberally applied it and left it to ...

... 241;os, just to spend the Carnival and get some other buckets of water in our face. The trip should last all day with a change of bus in a small town halfway between here and there; no more night buses, after all Ecuador is a small country in comparison to those in which we have been so far and the bus trips will certainly be shorter. Then maybe, if the clouds and the rain will stop for a minute or two, we could also have a look at the beautiful scenery from the window of the ...

... to be more successful than similar cultures in America. Perhaps it's just that the white conquerors did a more thorough job of destruction in the white settlement of North America. We do love Ecuador, an amazing little country! Cuenca is a wonderful combination of the old and new, with many modern conveniences and a nice barrier between the old on the north side of the river and the new Cuenca on the south side. Jerry is seeing a dentist this week about a new bridge ...

... Parque Calderon, where we caught a double-decker tourist bus that took us around to see most of the sights for only $5! The highlight of the bus tour was going to the Mirador de Turi which is a lookout point that overlooks the entire city sprawled out below. The end of the bus ride was pretty amusing because the tree branches were so low at some points that we had to stay alert or else we would get hit by ...
