My group was in charge of breakfast this morning so I didn't get as early as a start as I would have liked. Nevertheless, after breakfast, two girls and I walked to Rio Verde to visit the waterfall called the Devil's Cauldron. The amount of water crashing down was amazing.

I received an email this morning from a girl named Andrea who I did not know at all. Apparently Melissa let her know that I’m here in Cuenca, and Andrea was nice enough to offer to show me around. She picked me up from my hostel at 8pm and we went out for a bite to eat and a drink at a restaurant called Fogo.
