We’re still stuck in Popayan, so today a bunch of 13 of us from the hostel headed about an hour out of town to some hot springs / thermal baths to keep ourselves occupied and not going insane sitting around the hostel playing cards.
The baths were fun enough – if not a little slimy – and there was also a waterslide which the boys had a lot of fun on. Kel, Pete and I decided at one point to go down the waterslide in a group of three, which we realised about 3 seconds in as we picked up speed was a terrible idea. I’m still not walking properly.
We’ve heard mixed reports today about when we’re going to get out of here – one couple were told by a taxi driver that buses would be going tomorrow, our bus driver at the hotsprings today said it would be another 15 days, and the dude that works at the hostel here said that the last time this happened it lasted for a month….. we just want to get out and down to Ecuador as soon as possible and are praying to Buddha that it doesn’t take a month to do so.
