We started with a tour of the city itself. We received a brief tutorial on the history of the city, met some of the fine merchants of the city market, interacted with the cities youth and scaled the bell tower of the Basilica Church (not sure if that was legal but no one stopped us). Today we climbed Pichincha (15,400 ft), a record for three of the five members of this formidable team. Exhausted, the team boarded the bus and headed to the Papallacta Hot Springs. Team Jamerica, already exhausted from the days accomplishment, found this bus ride and the road conditions equally exasperating. Be that as it may, a dip in the springs quickly reminded us as to why we’re here. All is good in the Cloud Forest.
