This destination looks much nicer, few less cars, nicer buildings and much friendlier people. Found a hostel and grabbed a bite to eat.(Chinese).
The only reason we have come to this small secluded town is for a train ride.
Tomorrow we have to wake up at 6am, head to the train station and buy ourselves a return ticket. We don't actually have a destination we are only doing it for fun, you get to sit on the roof of a train whilst it goes through and around the mountains for 5 hours bringing us back into Riobamba. Its called the devils nose, not sure why but will let you all know tomorrow.
Today, got up at 6.30am to buy tickets and set of on the train, everyone sat ontop of the train, with a brilliant view, bit chilly at first but soon warmed up. It wasnt quite as fast or as exciting as we had hoped but still excellent scenary. Check the pics.
