The bus we took however was ram packed. By the time we sorted out our bags we where left with standing room only by entrance door/steps.
Only an hour of awkward standing!
Arriving in Ambato bus station this too was not the correct station for Banos bus. A short taxi ride took us to a smaller bus station with 8 empty bays & 4 police men. It wasn't too long till the Banos bus arrived
Headed straight to Hostel 'Plantas y Blanco'. We bumped into the 4 Aussies from Chugchilán. They had an even worse journey than us!
When in Banos you must take advantage of a Spa Treatment. We choose to combine a steam bath with a mud wrap. This was then filled by an aromatic bath & stone massage. We felt great!
As we only had half the Pasta Tuna Bolognese from evening before we enjoyed this cheap meal again. Hit the sack early for a 8am start biking tomorrow.
Laying in bed I see why the hostel has this name. An ivy plant went round the room a few times over a white backdrop. Plants & White!
