No Gracias, No es para mi

Overlooking the Tungurahua volcano near Banos de Agua Santa, about 90 miles from Quito, Ecuador, the “swing at the end of the world” is a tempting adventure for thrill seeking travelers, but not for me. Tethered to a rickety-looking wooden treehouse, the swing offers a breathtaking aerial panorama at more than 2,600 meters. By the way, Tungurahua, which means “throat of fire” in Quechua, last erupted in early November.
