Initially Ben was apprehensive about paragliding in Ecuador, dubious of safety standards in foreign lands and so forth. However after Alice explained that the flight would be for 30 minutes in between three volcanoes: Tungurahua, Cotopaxi and Chimborazo, Ben was adequately convinced that the risk of death was absolutely going to be well worth it.
According to one theory the name Tungurahua is a combination of the Quichua tunguri (throat) and rahua (fire) meaning “Throat of Fire”. A majestic entity to behold when flying around the sky with nothing but clouds to break our fall. Thank you Banos for yet another rocketing and euphoric experience seared nicely into our memory bank.
