The Paln Del Diablo, or in English Cauldron of the Devil is a magnificent waterfall in the Rio Verde area, about half an hour from Baos.
The Pailon Del Diablo is about 80 meters high and its one of the most spectacular waterfalls to visit in Banos and in Ecuador.

Ecuador is a mountainous country, and people are living on both sides of valleys. They have "zipline-like" cage to transport
people. My ride cost was $2/round trip.

They also use same station for zipline ride.

This country has many active volcanoes such as one across my hotel.

Papallacta at 11000ft, located in the Andes Mountains, is famous with its hot springs. All hotel cabins have natural thermal water spas pools at front.
Soaking in warm water in evening and early morning was really a relaxing experience.

Ecuador is a major rose export country, and we visited a rose plantation green house.

Roses are very cheap here, and it costs only $1/dozen at the market.

Ecuador, 2018.

Ecuador is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. Many cities and sites in Ecuador are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and Cotopaxi is the world's highest active volcano.
Ecuador has over one hundred different types of hummingbirds and thousands of orchid varieties. Cuyabeno Wild Life Reserve, Mindo and San Luis de Pambil are all good places to see many
types of flora and fauna. The Galapagos Islands are justly famed for their wildlife.
The Cuyabeno Wild Life Reserve is probably the best place to see the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador, even though there are other national parks which are also interesting. It's a place of high
biodiversity and nature lovers should feel in paradise. That's a good way to discover the indigenous communities of Ecuador and to eventually meet a local shaman. It's necessary to get to
Lago Agrio to reach the reserve. Private transportation is made possible by the local accommodation, which is provided by eco-lodges.

The Vasa Museum, Stockholm, Sweden, Scandinavia 2017.

The Vasa is the only preserved seventeenth-century ship in the world and a unique art treasure. More than 95 percent of the ship is
original, and it is decorated with hundreds of carved sculptures.

The 69 meter-long warship Vasa sank on its maiden voyage in the middle of Stockholm in 1628 and was salvaged 333 years later in 1961.
For nearly half a century the ship has been slowly, deliberately and painstakingly restored to a state approaching its original glory.
The three masts on the roof outside the specially built museum show the height of the ship's original masts. Today the Vasa Museum is
the most visited museum in Scandinavia, with over one million visitors a year.
