The Pools in Banos

We woke up to the sounds of birds and to a good breakfast before we took a taxi first to find a replacement screw for Hussain's windscreen , and then to the volcanic pools were they were set up at different temperatures.

We started from the coolest and ended with the warmest. We also met a guy there who is originally from Ecuador but lives in Australia and was visiting.

We then went into town and found a shot that makes crafts out of some kind of nut or big seed. The gay showed us how they carve and cut the nut and then polish it to make different items like buttons, earrings and necklaces.

Then we back to the spa for some relaxation since the next day was going to be another long ridding day estimated to be 10 hours to Loja.
