We took our time taking it all in but soon our ride would end in the small town of San Juan where we put our bikes onto the 4x4 and made our way back to Riobamba. It was a great day out and a brilliant way to spend my birthday. The next day we missioned off to the bus station to continue our journey south but this time we needed to get across the border into Peru to the small surfing town called ...
