Where I stayed
August 1st 2008 Banos Ecuador
My day of mental challenges:
If yesterday could be considered to be the day of physical challenges then today was that of mental challenges.
I started the day by jumping off of a bridge! Here in banos they have a bridge jump that is exactly as it sounds- and is similar to bungee jumping but once you jump you simply swing back and forth as a pendulum between two bridges. This sounded like a grand idea up until the point where the bridge employee told me to climb over the safety rail..
***What?!? You want me to do WHAT?!?! Are you crazy???***
I finally climbed over the rail and took a horrifying look down- nothing felt right about this! But... since there was nothing left for me to do- I jumped!
Immediately following my death defying act- I went rappelling down 5 waterfalls. This was a thrilling experience- but scary as heck! One of the waterfalls you actually rappel into a whirlpool! This wasn't physically challenging but it was certainly mentally challenging! The entire day was filled with mind over matter.
Another awesome day here in Ecuador!
I am pooped! I need to rest for a few days!!! J
