Day 109

February 20th, 2006: Cuenca, Ecuador to Loja, Ecuador

We took our bikes out of the lobby of the hotel this morning and did a bit more driving through the mountains again. I got a flat tire on a small piece of wood and we had to do an emergency repair on the side of the road. The bike was teetering precariously on the rocks we had propped it up on since the rocks were so soft they started crumbling away! We were pretty scared that the bike would tip over when the rocks finally gave way so we had to do a very hasty repair. It only took us a few minutes and we were on our way again! Other than that episode it was rather uneventful as far as storytelling goes, but the scenery was just breathtaking, so I will leave the pictures to do the explaining again today!
