    Ecuador closes on a Sunday. Mostly. But fortunately the supermarket opened, so we took a wander down through the old town, across the Rio Tomebamba (which is flowing rapidly) and into the new town. A quick walk across a park and we reach the supermarket. Here we pick up enough food to keep us going for a week. The market in the Plaza below our apartment is open on Sunday too. They are setting up (or set up already) when we wake up in the ...

    ... I went to the bus terminal. I ‘talked’ with the taxi driver about the cost of the car. He thought I was questioning if he was driving around to run up the meter. ‘No we never do that Senor.’ (in spanish) Finally I got through to him on the cost of the car. $15,000. US. It’s a lot of 1, 2 and 3 dollar cab rides to end up with any money from driving taxi. I had figured this to be the case when I first arrived in Ecuador. At the terminal ...

    ... as almost everyone is lining up to use the toilet. Stuffs me why you would place a lock on it, as the bus driver had to stand there and wait until everyone had finished, stupid process.

    ... dangerous. In order to get down the mountain there are 2 switchbacks (zig-zags) where the train goes backwards onto another line so it can then go forward. At times, as I looked out of the window, I could see nothing below us – the edge of the train was out over the ravine!!! A tad scary. The local tribe, whose land we were on, performed a few dances in traditional costumes. Lovely to watch.

    Rest of the day was more driving; zig-zagging up ...

    Day 13 Cuenca

    A travel blog entry by fish54 on Sep 09, 2014

    Cuenca is a gorgeous, spanish colonial city. We set out early and had a walk along the rio Tomebambo, that divides the city, old and new. It was a lovely area and hard to believe we were in the middle of the city. Went to the Pumapungo Museo. Interesting to learn about the different ethnic groups that inhabited Ecuador. Unfortunately, not all of the information had ...
