Typical weather, southern Ecuador

In southern Ecuador rain seemed integral to the environment. I'd intended visiting Cajas and/or Podocarpus National Parks, but the prospect of walking all day in the rain and seeing little other than the inside of the cloud put me off. The short message: if you're visiting southern Ecuador, allow plenty of time. This is a telephoto shot from my hostel in Vilcabamba.

This seems so long ago now. Hard to believe it was just over a month ago.

Downright eerie.

Maybe come over here? There are a few spluttering fireworks, log fires and still honey for tea.

Zhoen, eerie's the right word for some of these landscapes in this kind of weather. Cuenca, which I loved, also had a kind of strangeness about it that bordered on being eerie.

RR, that sounds so inviting! Thank you :^)
