Before leaving Ecuador we spent some time in Cuenca, strolling around the river and the main plaza.

Baños was the next place after Cotopaxi, a good place to bring Helena back to shape after a very intense flu that is never welcome while travelling.

After a couple of lovely, albeit freezing, days in Bogotà, we jumped on a flight for the city of eternal spring - Medellin - and a visit with the beautiful Sofia and her family.

While in Quito we decided to go for a few relaxing days surrounded by nature in an Eco-friendly lodge near the volcano Cotopaxi, our initial idea of relaxation suffered a big twist of faith and very soon we realized that this was going to be an activity intense stay .

Once upon a time, there was a small prince named Sohrab born to the giver of life, Vida. The prince lived with his lovely mother and father in a cold, fairly crazy place, high up in the mountains in the capital of the people of Columbus, Bogotá.

You are right after rainy Panama city we did enter Colombia through Cartagena, and what an amazing surprise it was.

Indecisive until the last minute if we should use 5 full days of our precious time left in South America (we are starting to feel pressed of time even though we have more than 2 months left before taking off from Rio for Auckland in early March) to do the trek to the Ciudad Perdida, or if we should rather just spend a couple of days on the beach and then move on to the next destination in order to make it to the Galapagos Islands in time for my dream of celebrating Christmas with some giant turtles.
Five minutes before the deadline, the night before the trek, we had made our decision and started a chase for cash machines that actually accepted foreign cards. By the 5th try we finally hit jackpot and withdrew the million!!!
