Hola from Baņos

As we are now traveling with a Dutch guy and now that England are not long in the football we are following Holland and their games. Watched Holland kick Brazil out of the football and after the game went in search of motorbikes for us to reach one of the many lookouts for the Volcano. Heading off with Andrew and Roberta we reached a decision for us girls to get buggies and the boys were happy on 250 cc trail bikes. The buggies were a whole lot of fun and on the incline were not too fast which made us girls feel quite safe, going down was a whole other story. The turning on them was appalling so poor Bernie had to park his bike up and give us a push everytime we needed to turn around. Got to the first lookout and after working out which way Tungurahua Volcano was we released that we could be waiting a while at the lookout for the clouds to clear to see the smoldering puppy. A highlight at the lookout was a swing which took you up over the side of a hill and a cool treehouse.  That day the clouds never cleared from the volcano and never did see the volcano our whole time in Baņos. Still enjoyed the town but happy to move on to Quito as we are keen to get to Columbia.
