Travel Blogs from Cuenca
We arranged with a young Canadian couple who were staying at
this hotel (we had earlier met them in Quito) to travel together to the best Inca
site in Ecuador at Ingapirca. We shared a taxi to the bus station and then
travelled by bus ($1.50 each) the 2 hours to the site. Sadly it began pouring

And when I climbed the hill at the viewpoint and found out there weren't any extra views, just some weird smelly shacks, I was a little disappointed at first, but then I went partially behind a bush to take ...
... that I didn’t feel so bad (at least I know he made it)! We scope out the city bus tour and opt to take that tomorrow. We both need a pedicure and there is a place right across from our hotel. $8.00 great deal (or so we think)!! We grab our sandals and walk back.
