Whale-Watching Video

Since I've been showing videos of other people's adventures, I thought I'd show one of our adventures. It is when we went on the whale-watching / Isla de la Plata trip in 2012. The video is compliments of Michael Edwards. Thank you Michael for this great video:

Ecuador - Baños - Puyo - Misahualli - Tena

In the "Adventure in Nature" route along Banos-Puyo-Tena-Misahualli, let your adrenaline and nature guide you. In the landscapes of Banos, conquer your fear of heights amidst waterfalls and rivers. In Puyo, take a canoe trip to native communities and in Tena, take an adrenaline-rushing rafting trip in the fierce rivers of the rainforest. Then you can go to the serene rainforest of Misahualli and Muyuna. Book your tour:

From time to time, I find videos about Ecuador that I'll share on my blog.  Here's one about one of our malls in Cuenca, called Mall del Rio.  It's a large two-story mall, only about 10 minutes away by car from our condo.  We used to go there more often than we do now.  Now, we're settled in to our condo and don't go out as much as we did when we first arrived.  We've been here for 3-1/2 years now and have seen a lot of improvement and progress in Cuenca.

So, here's the video:
