Wendy and Alison

We've just spent an awesome few days in another part of Ecuador that we had not visited before: Zamora - it's about 6 hours by bus away from Cuenca and is situated in the Oriente (or Jungle), so consequently it is a lot warmer, greener and buggier (is that a word? What I am trying to say there are heaps more insects that bite down there). Alison (she lived with us last year) and Wendy, both previously in the Chinese group here in Cuenca, now serve down there. There are a lot of Chinese people in that area as they are building Hydroelectric dams etc,   so it a field ripe for harvesting and they are doing a great job.                                                   

While there, we went for a walk through the jungle to a beautiful waterfall - the scenery is just breathtaking (something else that was breathtaking was the uphill slogs)
Glorious flowers along the way
Fascinating butterflys

This photo I stole off  the internet cause there was no way we could capture them - they were really cool but really fast. 

Finally made it to the waterfall - only for brave souls - rather chilly!
