Fun in Baños

... rested/caught up with Matt and the rest of the world after having no contact in the jungle). We all went out for dinner in the evening. On Thursday Danny, Rachel, Jeremy, Alex and I went on a 4 hour open top bus tour of Baños and the surrounding which was great!

... of butterflies, birds and tropical flowers and for that reason we decided to skip the sanctuaries and go straight to the chocolate. El Quetzal is a small chocolate company run by a couple and some workers. It consists of a house with a restaurant and a garden, growing most of the ingredients they use in their chocolate. We get to try all combinations, my favourite is ginger and chili.
After all the chocolate excitement its hard to know what to do next!! ...
