      At dinner the night before, our waiter was also the hotel attendant and arranged the tours, and helped us get a tour reserved at 9pm. I was impressed! After a lot of back and forth, we opted for a visit to Cotopaxi, Ecuador's tallest volcano and the second most active volcano in the world. We chose the tour that included a 3 hour horseback riding …

      Since our flight wasn't until 1pm, we decided to visit Las Loberias, a popular beach outside of town. While I was expecting a more traditional beach, it turned out to just be a great area to continue to view the local wildlife. We were able to watch sea lions play in the sand, pelicans eat their breakfast, baby octopuses in the tidal ponds, iguanas …

      ... no direct service to Banos from Lago. So we pay the $8 each for our ticket and head out and grab our seats. Within five minutes of doing so, Mark and Bri rock up and jump on the bus too. I quickly duck to the toilet and when I come out at 0701, the bus was ready to leave and had only not left as Leesh had told them I was in the toilet. Two minutes earlier, the drivers were just sitting down having a chat and the bus was off so I was surprised it was ready to roll. I gave Leesh ...

      ... checked my email...and YES, we are booked on the Tip Top Galapagos Ship from February 6-13.

      It was now only 4:00 pm, and we had time for a tour of the interior of Campagna de Jesus since we only saw the outside during our walking tour. This Jesuit church competes with Fort Knox. It is clear that there are seven tons of twenty three carat gold leaf in this church. It seems that every square centimetre from ...
