    ... It was funny. We saw flamingos on the hike. We could not get close because they were on the opposite side of a disgusting smelly lake of goo. Their color is magnificent - and it turns out they are born white. But they eat alge and the shrimp also eat the algae and the flamingos eat the shrimp - the algae is filled with beta carotene-hence the pink color. The brighter pink the male flamingo the better off he will be finding a mate. Then we ...

    ... decide to head down towards the bus where it is hopefully a lot warmer inside and wait until it sets off in half an hour. Half an hour goes by and we head off down the mountain. It's a nice drive back down and as we reach the bottom back to Banos we look up at the mountain we had just trekked up and felt proud of ourselves. Many people would have just paid the $1 to get up and skip the hike, but not us die-hards. Looking back up at the hills around, we hiked to the top of ...
