Day 234am – Sunday in Baños

Sunday in Baños. Such a great chilled out town dominated by an active volcano and thermal baths. Plenty of local tourists as this is the last day of vacations in Ecuador. Roasted cuy (guinea pig), craft markets and an unusual way of making local toffee where it is stretched over a wooden hook, beaten and shaped for packaging. The Church of the Virgin Holy Water) here is a place of pilgrimage where people come to thank the Virgin for her miracles. It has been saved many times during volcanic eruptions over the centuries.
