Just a quick one today as the computer is in the living room of the hostel and people are trying to watch a film and the space bar is VERY loud. Oops.
So on Tuesday we left beautiful Baños to head further down Ecuador to Cuenca, the country´s third largest city. The 7 hour bus ride wasn´t too fun, but it was a welcome surprise to hear ´Beat It´playing on the coach amongst the Latino tunes (which I also love!).
Cuenca is nice – cobbled roads, narrow streets, lots of museums and art galleries. To be honest, it feels like we´re in Europe! Today we went to no less than three museums, plus we visited a craft market. At 4ish it started to rain very heavily, and there was a huge storm which has pretty much only just stopped!
We have started to buy a lot of our food and cook in the kitchen of the hostel as we really need to start saving money. We´ve been sitting watching films for the past two nights here with a couple from the USA. It´s nice and cosy with the rain pouring outside!
Tomorrow we leave for Loja, and then the stop after that will take us into Peru! Adios for now 🙂
