... showed us their "cirque de solei" performances underwater, weaving in and out of rocks and coral. One of the most captivating species underwater were the sharks: hammerheads, white/black tipped, silky, and Galapagos sharks. On almost each one of our seventeen dives, we saw sharks hovering around us. One of the Galapagos sharks must have been around 10ft (3m) long. One of the more exhilarating moments was when we looked up from our holding spot on the rocks, and saw a school of ...

Independence of Cuenca Day

A travel blog entry by lucywillson


... I remembered the river Tomebamba and decided to go for a walk along it. On my way there I stopped at an almuerzo (set lunch) café and had a plate of seco de pollo and bottle of Pepsi for $2.50.

Once I got to the river I congratulated myself on my decision to come, because I saw a whole series of market stalls, under gazebos and open-sided tents, stretching along both sides of quite a decent-sized stretch of the river. As well as the stalls, there were many more people ...
