We have a lot to do today but we don't meet the guide until eleven so Southern Man slipped out to pick up a couple of nearby geocaches.
The first was near the Basílica de La Virgen de las Angustias...
...and the second, near the Iglesia Imperial de San Matías.
And then began the most strenuous and physically-demanding day of the trip (so far) - beginning with a bus ride to a river valley where we would walk up the mountain and down into the valley and back up the mountain. Christian called it the "Waterfall Tour" but it proved to be much, much more. Pictures don't do it justice but Southern Man shot about eighty anyway...
Looking into the valley. The sound of rushing water was omnipresent.
Walking the path by the canals.
Everyone else took lots of pics too. That's Carrin (Christian's girlfriend) and Christian.
Up, up, up we go!
...and as soon as we got back to town (far behind schedule) there was no time to even drop by the hostel so we walked straight to the plaza to meet with our guide and again walked up the hills to a peak overlooking the city..l.
