Coca

 From Quito, we returned to the airport (an hour from the heart of Quito) and flew to Coca, which is a relatively nondescript, small town on the Napo River in the Amazon basin.  We joined our guide from the Napo Cultural Center there and got in motorized canoes for our journey down the river.  Quito is at about 10,000' and had been dry and cool... no more!  Now it was humid and hot.
