Well, itīs time to move onto Ecuador.

In a nutshell, we took a 10h bus (soul destroying journey) to the border town of Ipiales and found ourselves (The Irish and I) a $10 triple.

The next day we headed to Santuario Las Lajas, a Lord of the Rings-esq church/cathedral/whatever perched on the side of a cliff at the spot the Virgin Mary was claimed to have appeared many moons ago.

This was a first rate box ticking exercise - despite the rain we piled into a cab, jumped out, ran to it, took the photos and whizzed back home again. All over in under an hour! Still, it would have been a shame to miss it as we were so close. Pretty, but a shame about the weather.

Upon our return i had a fresh trout for breakfast (meal for under $2, canīt go wrong), and weīre off to to border itself next...
