Another early start today but it was worth it!! Took a 2 hour drive to Cotopaxi- the highest active volcano in the world!! Seven of us eventually went on the trip...unfortunately one of our group over indulged yesterday and had to pass! We climbed to a height of 4,500 metres by road and then came the difficult part- we had to climb 300m to reach the base camp by foot! Now this doesnt seem too hard a task until you factor in the lack of oxygen at this level- it took abot an hour of panting and puffing but we all eventually made it!! As it was so quiet we also managed to avoid paying the $10 entrance fee to the park which was a bonus!!
