I spent this day getting progressively more lost. Even with my Maps.Me I took a wrong turn getting from my hostel to the bus station. I couldn’t get lost on the bus but I did need to see every other tourist get off at one stop to know that it was mine. Then, after registering at the park office and getting a map with specific instructions about how to navigate the park, I set out immediately on the wrong path. But at least it was a path.
Until it wasn’t and that’s when I got lost in dense forest. Fortunately, there was at least a river for me to follow… somewhere?
Eventually I did find my way back to the path and out of the park. But don’t fret, still more opportunities to get lost. Thought I was walking to the park office, ended up at a toll booth. Waited at toll booth for bus for 45 minutes until I decided to hitchhike and got dropped off in a part of Cuenca where I was totally lost.
All in all a pretty good day.
