One highlight of the walking tour was the Mom o’ God statue on the hill after what seemed like 1000 stairs. Stairs are normally not a big deal, but after the run, and simply being here at a higher than usual elevation, made it rather more difficult. My legs protested a bit on the way up and back down. Not to be deterred, though, they gamely carried me to a cafe where I was able to resuscitate them with empanadas and the local Pilsner. Achievement unlocked.
Afterward, we visited the botanical gardens and ended up the day at another microcerveceria, this one called Sinners. I liked this one even more than Bandidos, but it wasn’t quite as convenient to the hotel, and we needed a cab at $3 to get us back home for the night. Ahhh, the price we pay for sampling the world’s beer, eh?
Tomorrow is a tour to the equator and up the cable car. Whee! But, some pics, mostly of flowers, to finish this off.
