Well, a journey and a half to Banos, what with a blockage due to volcanic eruptions and the (actually very nice) peasants revolting about their lot. The white knuckle ride for the end of the journey turned out to be in a 4 x 4 over a lava field - no photes, too scary to take out the camera. All in all a very interesting journey here. The Posada del Arte is an unusual little hotel with a great view, and very comfy. Maybe it´s the warmer weather down here- only 6500 ft up.
This morning we were up early, as always and had a splendid walk in the hills around Banos. Quito seems a lifetaime away already, it's so esay and relaxing in Banos, just a small town in the foot of a volcano.
