We took our ride in the back of a ute up to the first waterfall and took a cable car overthe forest and out to the other side where we hiked out to the first waterfall through some really beautiful forest scenes and eventually came to the waterfall and watched people climb onto rocks and jump into the lagoon below. Bob Hope and No Hope!!! Looked so dangerous!!! So we hiked back up and took another ute down to the zip lines. A 13 lines wire assault course awaited and we took the challenge on, Butterflying (hanging upside down from the zip line with the guides holding your legs .
After the zip line extravaganzza was finished we realised we´d missed the official bus back to Quito. Slight problem as Natalie had a plane to catch that night!!! However, in Quito this isn´t a problem as any part of any road is considered a bus stop. So we simply got our ute to take us up to the Pan American Highway where we waited to hail down any bus heading to Quito. 45 mins later and much to Nat´s relief we were Quito bound.
Been really great to be back in Quito but i´m certainly ready for a change and to get to the Amazon. Will be such a shame to say goodbye to Bernadette and Steve, they´re joining another group, they´ve been amazing fun and we´re still plotting to kidnap them. Watch this space .....
