The real blog will come later today or tomorrow. We are about to leave Banos on our way to our next stop here in Ecuador meeting with an NGO that helps to preserve the rainforest. Since nothing is open here on New Years Day morning, I am sitting outside a cafe on the sidewalk using the Wifi. Yesterday was the best way I could imagine finishing a year.
We started the day with some canyoning, followed by fresh trout cooked by the coolest local guy ever, followed by a dip in the thermal baths, and all culminating with huge bonfires and the most out of hand New Years in my history.
So for lack of a place to write more, I would like to say Happy New Year to everyone.
