    My bivy sack got the big test last night; it rained the whole night.
    Conclusion - it leaks like a sieve. I had to sleep in the freezing cold (it
    must have hit low 40s) with a wet sleeping bag. I don't think I've been that
    cold since the time my camelbak burst inside my sleeping bag in Nepal. Time
    to do some more seam-sealing on my bivy sack.

    While I was having breakfast and trying to warm myself up, a bus load of
    nature guides showed up. One of them (Jhesica) invited me to join them on the
    bus. Of course I accepted the offer, and before I knew it, I was on a bus to
    who knew where. I ended up getting dropped off a ways down the road, and I
    road to a town called Baños, which is a beautiful spot. It was even sunny for
    the ride into town. Of course it rained in the evening. My clothes will
    never be dry.
