    Good value cheap hostel smack bang in the middle of town. The decor could do with a bit of a clean up, it's a bit grubby around the edges to say the least and we had no hot water for a day or so, but for $30 for a double with private bath in a city centre, whadaya expect?!

    ... community where we learnt about their culture, as well as visiting a shaman. The shaman performed a traditional healing routine on one of the girls in our group, which consisted of using nettle (which hurts like a *****), to produce an anaesthetic effect. I had this done to my hand. It burns like a ***** at first, but feels numb afterwards. The lodge we stayed in was decent with lots of hammocks, yet our room was a tarantulas heaven with dark hidey holes. I felt safe in my ...

    ... bubbling away at 5,000 metres above sea level and flamingoes wading through sulphurous lakes. The culmination of the trek came on the last day when we arrived at the salt flats. Armed with what was essentially a bag of rubbish (an empty wine bottle, pringles tubes, etc.) we proceeded to spend an hour trying to orchestrate the best pictures we could (not as easy as it looks!), which included all the boys getting naked - any excuse!

    ... while we were here was a day trip out to a lake in the crater of an old volcano. The cool thing about this lake were the two islands in the middle created by smaller eruptions at some stage. The staff at the hostel were really helpful and explained the best way to get out there and the nest way to get back which helped a lot. We have developed a dislike for Lonely Planet and other guide books the longer we've been on this trip as they often lead you to dud spots ...

    ... paio d'ore, come quello che abbiamo fatto da Latacunga fino alla capitale. Capitale che si trova quasi sull'equatore, e da dove in effetti sarebbe anche possibile andare a vedere il posto dove passa questa linea immaginaria; il posto si chiama letteralmente Mitad del Mundo e suona come la classica trappola per turisti. Non bastasse, nella fretta di costruirci un monumento con negozi e cianfrusaglie annessi e connessi, si sono anche sbagliati nel calcolare il luogo esatto dove passa ...

    ... once we got to the ticket stand at the station, we had to pay 80 cents to have the bus wait for us (the boys made us late, as usual). We ran through the bus station, and thought that bus left without us. Then a man appeared out of nowhere and asked me where we were headed. I said Tena, and he waved for us to follow him at a brisk jog with all of our luggage. We made the bus, surprisingly, and endured the long drive without getting carsick on bendy mountain roads. We were held ...
