The hotel is situated in the middle of Riobamba. It is a very traditional hotel with the rooms situated around squares. We were unlucky and got a hotel at the front next to the road which is quite busy. However strangely the room didn't have an outside window, our window opened onto the inside courtyard. This was good in that there was less noise but unfortunately we did have a vent onto the road and we couldn't close it or block out the noise (we did try with cushions). Otherwise the hotel was OK.

After breakfast we went to the bus station and finally got our tickets to Riobamba. The trip took 6 hours with many local pickup and drop off stops but we had good seats up the front and watched another Hollywood/Spanish voice over movie which filled in the last 2 hours. We flagged down a taxi which took us to our hotel which was fairly close ...

Our washing was back too. Really, on the road washing clothes is a constant weekly need and thankfully it is generally easy to find a lavendaria where you drop the bag off, it is weighed and you pay per weight for the wash and dry and fold service. Usually we pay about 5 dollars for our bag of clothes to be ...
... since his is truly becoming a great friend of mine. I only fell in the river once on accident. I was riding on the very front of the raft, seeking adventure I guess, and I got thrown off. The only scary part was being surrounded by three rafts. I was almost in the middle of a raft sandwich. Other than the one accidental falling in, I jumped in about four other times. I really did not expect that experience to be so much fun. I wonder what adventures will be next!
... some photos of. We saw one butterfly a few houses, a small school, and a lot more rain. It was a nice walk. We did a few "indoor" activities like making string, making bracelets, and making chocolate from scratch. It was fascinating learning how cacao goes from fruit to chocolate bar. This part of my trip is going to be a wonderful addition to what I already teach my students about globalization, free trade, fair trade, and the chocolate from the Ivory Coast. I was so lucky ...
