Heidi and I got to stay home this morning and relax! Chase, Easton, Jenni, and Holleigh headed out the door at 7 am to go to Baños de Cuenca. It is the thermal hot spring resort that is about a 10 minute taxi ride from our house. Heidi and I went there a few weeks ago and thought it was great. Since no one stepped in a hot spring at the real Baños, the younger crowd decided to try it here in Cuenca. In addition to hot thermal water they have mud baths, steam boxes, and saunas too.

When they all got back to our place everyone was hungry, so we walked over to El Fogon de Nico, which is near us on Las Americas, for a late lunch. When we finished lunch we walked a block to Super Stock to get a couple of items we needed. This is the first time Chase has been in a general type store (think Target) in Ecuador. He had his first experience of Ecuadorian sticker shock.

It’s been a very chill day not doing too much. The younger crowd planned on going out to the bars and dancing tonight…but not until 9 pm. Personally I wish they would leave earlier so I could just go to bed now. 😉

Oh to be young again…eh, maybe not.
