After dodging volcanoes in Baños, we took a bus down to Cuenca. Click here for Map.
They’d told us that the ride would take 3 hours, but it actually took 5 ½ hours, and the bathroom was out of service! We were both happy to get to Cuenca. The countryside was mostly volcanic, but cultivated, steep Andean mountains. A nice moment in the trip was a stop in a small town, where this young girl posed happily for a photo with her puppy. Not to be outdone, her brother appeared with his somewhat larger puppy for another photo!
