Spending middle part of my "Volun-Tourism" Sabbatical here in Banos, taking Spanish classes at Raices Spanish School, with Maestro Marco helping me focus in on Cientifico de la Cuenca (Watershed Science) including opportunities de practicar mis lecturas. Then afternoons walking and hiking marvelous area INCREDIBLE vertical everywhere -- hike to ridge and find higher ridge beyond then volcano beyond. Preparing for Malingua Pamba, hiked 500 meters elevation yesterday just sore afterwards and thirsty (good to stay in Hostal with thier own brew pub), trying to understand orchids, more photos of dirt and plants to come.

Carnival was fun and quite family friendly here, lots of people fun.

Hostal Posada Del Arte very comfortable, gourmet. Good sized resort town, nice people, excellent food, healthy feeling of prosperity. Cloud forest all 'round.
