Just fell through the rotten floor in the hotel. Luckily no harm done, though the splinter could have been nasty!

Lovely meal at El Cedro. Salad, BBQ chicken, drinks. That was after the volcannically heated baths. Very relaxed! ☺

Do you know this #Danish #badmanneredman? He left the queue for the Cusco to #Lima flight #LAN2018 at #Cusco airport this morning and then about 10 minutes later, without a word, just barged in front of Margaret when we had reached the head of the queue, with no one behind us. When I remonstrated with him he said "I said I'll be back"! Amazing! I said "that's not the way it works". He claimed it was in #Denmark. Anyway, we let it go, he just wasn't worth it. I hope he enjoyed the extra 4 minutes it gave him in the departure lounge.

Arrived in Banos after a visit to a rose farm and Hacienda La Cienaga, once owned by an Ecuadorian president. Bit of a dull day, but simply stunning scenery.

The best (& most expensive) meal we've had in South America (so far): #URKO in #Quito, #Ecuador.

Our first Ecuadorian meal. Interesting! Lots of pork, potatoes, cheese & pastry, and frying. Quite expensive here at the Plaza Foch in the commercial & tourist area of Quito. Ecuador has used the US$ since 1999 and it shows in the prices. Shades of EU & Euro.

A classic letter of complaint
www.breakingnews.ie

Someone's not happy with the Customer Relations Advisor in Norwich.

I can only describe it as corporate blackmail. I was suffering, badly from the altitude and could hardly breathe. At about 23.00 my wife went to reception to arrange some. They said they would be along soon with some. About 5 minutes later someone arrived and said that if I walked to reception it was free but they would charge $40 to bring it to the room. I could hardly breathe, I could hardly stand, let alone walk the c.150 metres to reception, so we were forced to agree to pay $40. As I said, corporate blackmail. Treating an unwell customer as a cash machine. When mentioning this to our guide and driver they were shocked saying "oxygen is always free up here, we're so high". And the previous evening, at the Stannum hotel in La Paz that had been the case - oxygen was brought to our room without charge. It's also the case that the other 5 or so Bolivians to whom we've mentioned this have been shocked by the attitude and appalled by the charge. To me both the attitude and the charge are wrong and bad business practice too. The attitude: you don't blackmail your customers under any circumstances, let alone when they are unwell! The charge: altitude sickness is a fact here. Any good hotel business will have a good idea of the percentage of guests affected and take it as a cost of business - after all the charge can hardly make them much and has a bad impact on their image and reputation. It's just bad business and a rip off. If it had not been for this the hotel would have got a good review, but now I shall tell everyone to avoid it and go elsewhere. Their attitude should not be tolerated. Bad, bad, bad.
