Off the beaten path in Baños – My Maybe Drug Experience in Ecuador

Off the beaten path in Baños – My Maybe Drug Experience in Ecuador


I woke at 5.30 AM to get to Baños and took a Ten hour bus on a bendy road through the Ecuadorian countryside. I was tired hot and uncomfortable. The next bus I was about falling asleep after I bought a bag of chopped mango from a trader onboard. When she left the bus did I notice the small bag of fine white powder nestled amongst the mango slices. I will never know if it was cocaine or simply icing sugar but I have heard horror stories of tourists having drugs planted on them. Feeling so tired I panicked the bag as far away from me as I could. Keep your wits about you in South America.
