MULTIFACETED BAÑOS by Laurene on June 8, 2010

(OU BAÑOS AUX MULTIPLES FACETTES)

Jenna has already written about our adventures in Baños, a hub for Ecuadorian and foreign tourists for rafting, canyoning, body jumping and nightlife. But Baños is also a charming little town nested in the mountains. Let’s wander around…

Jenna a déjà conté nos aventures vécues à Baños, plaque tournante pour les touristes équatoriens et étrangers en recherche de sensations fortes du genre rafting, canyoning et saut à l’élastique, et souhaitant profiter d’une vie nocturne sympa. Mais Baños est aussi une charmante petite ville nichée au creux des montagnes. C’est parti pour la promenade…

Street vendors selling "Fritada," a dish of pork meat, potatoes and corn, and "Ceviche de chocho," a dish of chocho (type of grain), corn, toasted corn, oignon, tomatoes, tomato sauce and pork skin.

Observing the turtle in our hotel patio.

The Turtle! I think it might be a Motelo turtle, a species possibly related to Galapagos species. (She looks a lot like the turtles I took care of while volunteering at the animal rescue center!)

The church of Baños. At night the white roofs turn electric blue... Strange.

Leather products: hats, caps, bags, flasks...

Salespeople waiting for tourists on the main square;

The famous thermal baths of Baños: "las piscinas de la Virgen."
