Welcome back to life! [06:57]
Hello everybody The name of this post is program! After having had a hard time since the beginning of February I kind of decided that I need to get back to life and that was on Monday last week. Many of you know, that I had an accident on February 2nd in front of the house I'm staying at and was spending some days in the Hospital of Ambato and after that stayed in Baños resting and getting well again. The time spend in Hospital was quite an experience. I wrote a bit about the health system in Ecuador and that I decided to not make use of this in my last post. But as mentioned already several times, it always comes different. So I found myself in bed number 24 of a room with 25 beds and as so many times before also here being the only GRINGO! After one day I took the first look into a mirror and it was then that I understood why doctors, nurses and especially the other patients and visitors were looking pitiful at me! Everybody was so nice, helpful and caring that I never felt uncomfortable at any time. And up from day three there was even a 24 hour police attendance in my part of the room. After having a chat with the officer I found out, it was because of the new patient lying 3 beds next to me who was a prisoner and there was danger of flight. He wouldn't tell me though, what he's been charged for and sometimes it's better to not know all details. After four days I left the hospital and returned to Baños. Meanwhile I'm doing way better again and I started being a bit ...
Gualaceo Ecuador [04:17]
Just 28 Km. east of Cuenca and a world apart. The roads out of Cuenca are wide and modern, but very quickly narrow to a single lane and steep sides of bare rock and lush vegetation. Passing over small, fast, running rivers and streams, the air is clear and crisp, as we get closer to Gualaceo. The architecture of Cuenca is left behind, and we move into buildings that remind me of Austria and northern Italy. As we approach the city, I see that it is placed in a valley that has a single river running into it. The steep sides have buildings clinging onto the hillsides, and the valley fades away between two mountains. There were no low clouds or haze from pollution obstructing my view. I can see how the city has grown, from the main road that cuts through the heart of the old city. To one side, the river forms a natural barrier; on the other side, the sprawl is halted by the steep terrain. The hostal we stayed in was in the center by the mercado where they had general food, meat, and fruit vendors. Also, this is where you can go for your breakfast and lunch. They have delicious local food that I had not experienced in other parts of Ecuador. The hostal was nice- the room was on the third floor; it had a double bed, shower, toilet and a TV. No heating, but for $15.00 a night, what can you expect? It has been a year or more since I have needed to have a blanket to keep me warm. As we arrived in the late afternoon, we checked in and then went driving around to get a feel for the ...
