We stopped near a stream and the lad explained in Spanish (with Greg translating) about the different types of rock and how the volcano gives the water a natural fizz.

... to Casa del Arbol... a swing on the edge of the world. This was super cool. It's a swing, hanging off a treehouse and feels just like the name suggests.... that you're swinging on the edge of the world. Peaceful as. Harry also decided he couldn't possibly come to Baños and not do something life-threatening, so he decided to do the bridge jump. It's like bungee jumping except the rope is tied around your waist instead of your legs, so you ...
