Shutterbug Saturday: Baños part IV

We were leaving Baños as I took some of these pictures.

That pizza box is from Pizzeria Buono which has the best pizza in Ecuador. I felt proud of myself trying to order my pizza in Spanish. Even though I made mistakes, the employees were really forgiving and even helped me out when I messed up on some of the words. There are also some countryside photos with the Tungurahua mountain in the background.

Shutterbug Saturday: Baños de Agua Santa part II

Here’s more photography taken from Baños, Ecuador.

We went higher up in the mountainous part of the town where we saw the Swing at the End of the World which is over 6000 feet above sea level as you’re swinging right in the Andes. Right next to it is The Tree House which overlooks the Andes region in Baños. I tried swinging and it was amazing despite having some issues with heights.

Here’s some more photos taken at The Quilotoa Loop in Ecuador.

There are some more shots of the volcanic lagoon, but I threw in some shots in this rural part of the country.

Shutterbug Saturday: The Quilotoa Loop

Welcome to The Quilotoa Loop!

Quilotoa is a volcanic lagoon inside a crater. It’s over 12000 feet above sea level and there are some towns built right on the slope right here in the Andes. It was quite a sight seeing this natural scenery and I’ve never seen a volcanic lagoon (let alone volcanoes) in my life until visiting Ecuador.

Shutterbug Saturday: Hacienda La Cienega (Lasso, Ecuador) Pt. III

Shutterbug Saturday! Woohoo!

Here are the last few pictures from the Hacienda La Cienega. Those are more chapel shots and some from the garden. I have some photos of the Cotopaxi Province countryside as we were en route to a town that makes Quito look like flatland Illinois. Stay tuned…
