Enjoying in hot spa
(16. nov - 25.nov)

(english version below)

Hola amigos😊 Torej kot ze veste, tudi pri nama se je zacela dezevna doba tako da naju vsak dan posteno spere...socustvujeva z vami😊 Po dezevni Cuenci sva v Bañosu le docakala malo soncka in se dobro pogrela v termalnih vodah. Baños je majno mestece Med Andi in Amazonijo, obdano z vulkani (nekaterimi zelo delujujocimi). Znano je torej po termalnih vulkanskih vodah in pa kot backpakerski raj v Ekvadorju. Prvi dan sva se torej vsa premrazena namakala v vroci (zelo vroci) vodi, popoldne pa prezivela pred televizijo (beri: dezevalo je kot iz skafa). Drug dan sva najela kolesa in sla protu mestu Puyo, vmes pa ogledala kakih 10 slapov, sla z gondolo preko visecih mostov, dvakrat zamenjala gumo na kolesu😊 Torej vse bi bilo lepo in prav ce naju ne bi po 40km ujel dez... optimista dala ponchote gor in gonila v klanc kot manijaka...nato ugotovila, da je se 25km in ustavila prvi pick-up in se odpeljala proti Puyu. Namen izleta v Puyo je bil predvsem opicje zavetisce (Paseo de los Monos), kjer imajo kakih 70 opic, tako ali drugace resenih, s poskodbami ali pa traumatizirane. Nekatere nevarne so v zaprtem prostoru ostale

who's that hot guy :P
pa se mirno setajo okrog...med drugim tudi po tvoji glavi, rokah in vseh zepih😊 Urosa je Dorita za 2 uri cisto okupirala...na koncu pa jokala ko sva sla...😞
Zadnji dan v Bañosu sva sla se do par razglednih tock, do super razgleda na vulkan (ki je bil seveda v megli in oblakih😊, se druzila z lokalnimi pasjimi mladicki, pogledala mestno parado solskih otrok in sla na avtobus proti vulkanu Quilotoa.

Zjutraj sva spet docakala malo soncka in sla do vulkanskega jezera Quilotoa...spet peske naredila kakih 700m nadmorke visine (na nadmorski visini cez 3500m), popoldne pa ze proti glavnemu mestu Quito.

Quito je bil namenjen iskanju jungle ture, ki sva jo po kar dolgem iskanju nasla po najini meri, zamenjala vse plane, rezervirala in vsa vesela odskakljala za par dni na plazo. Med drugim sva skoraj kupila turo na Galapagose...ampak o tem kdaj drugic😊 Dva vecera sva ga tudi dobro zazurala - in to s samimi lokalci plus seveda nekaj nemcev...obvezno v Ekvadorju😊

Iz Quita sva na lovu za soncnimi zarki sla v Montañito (vec srece prihodnjic), surfarski raj in lusno mestece. Sledil je Puerto Lopez kjer sva naredila 2 potopa na "Poor man's Galapagos" (Isla de la

Plata). Potop je bil nad pricakovanji, videla VELIKO jat rib, hobotnice, skate, morene in pa pravega MORSKEGA PSA 1,5m...tranquilo como Ecuador😊 Za piko na i pa sva se druzila se z morskimi zelvami!

Zadnji dan na plazi sva sla na "urice" ribolova, in spet je bilo nad pricakovanji! Ujeli smo kar nekaj rib... mesani obcutki - en dan obcudujes ribe, plavas z njimi, drugi dan jih pa lovis in potem pojes😊 (zato je ena moja na skrivaj romala nazaj v morje...kaj morem ce sem pa ribica😊 Najboljse je pa sledilo: kljub temu da se zdalec ni sezona za opazovanje kitov, smo videli celo druzino (in jo s colnom lovili po zalivu, da bi dobili cim boljse fotke😊hehe in enkrat smo se skoraj prevrnili, ko je kit prisel ven in puhnil, vseh deset pa na eno stran colna s fotoaparatom...ajajaj! Za kosilo pa so nam postregli s svezim Chevichejem (surova riba, marinirana v limoni in soli - z zelenjavo). Super dan!

Ekvador nama je super vsec, celo bolj kot Peru. Ljudje so super, dogodivscine se bolj, predvsem pa so razdalje manjse in tako si skoraj lahko en dan na plazi, drug dan v gorah in tretji v dzungli. In pa koncno sva vidla tud dobre papi-je in mamite😊

Zdaj pa tura, ki sva ga dolgo cakala...dezevni gozd, 5 dni, 4 osebe, 2 kanuja, piranhe, anakonde in se mnogo vec!😊

Hola amigos😊 So as you know, the rainy season caught us... After the rainy Cuenca we finnaly got a bit of sun in Bañosu. Banos is a small town between the Andes and the Amazon, surrounded by volcanoes (some very active). The first day we spent soaking in hot thermal volcanic spa and the afternoon spent watching TV (read: It was raining as crazy). Second day we rented bikes and went toward Puyo, in between saw some 10 waterfalls, went to the cable car through suspension bridges, replaced two flat tires😊 The purpose of the trip to Puyo was mainly the monkey sanctuary (Paseo de los monos) where there are about 70 monkeys, one way or another rescued, with injuries or traumatized. Some dangerous in a confined space while the rest walk around peacefuly.

Last day in Baños we went to a couple of vista points, for a great view over the volcano (which was of course in the fog and clouds😊, hanging out with

One dirty one clean
local puppies, watch the city parade of school children and sat on the bus to the volcano Quilotoa to see the beautiful emerald lagoon (and again did some 700m of altitude walking).

After that...in Quito we spent 2 rainy days looking for the perfect jungle trek (wich in the end we found), changed all plans, reserved, and left all happy for a couple of days on the beach. Among other things, we almost bought a tour to the Galapagos ... but more on this next time😊 Also a very good night out with locals!

From Quito we were chasing the sun...went in Montañita (better luck next time), surfer's paradise and very cute little town. Next was Puerto Lopez where we did two dives at the "Poor Man's Galapagos" (Isla de la Plata). The dive was above expectations, saw a lot of schools of fish, octopus, sting rays, morey eels, and A real SHARK 1.5 m... tranquilo como Ecuador😊 For the icing on the cake, we saw sea turtles!

...

Equador is great, we love it - even more than Peru. The people are great, adventures even more, but mostly the distances are shorter, so you can
