... tedesco, una serie di splendidi esemplari di aquile e falchi feriti sono nutriti e curati in alcune enormi voliere. Abbiamo anche assistito ad alcune dimostrazioni di volo di questi splendidi animali e siamo rimasti senza parole davanti a un impressionante ed enorme condor andino, il pezzo forte di questa riserva. Direi che non c'era posto migliore dove terminare la nostra breve visita dell'Ecuador, una piccola gemma di Paese incastonata tra i giganti del Sud America ...

... Cuenca which will then sell it for $1,200 or so.

Martina and Juan Carlos purchased their land and landscaped it with many lovely flowering plants, most of which can be eaten or have medicinal properties. Martina took us on a tour of her garden with Gonzalo translating and elaborating with some history and cultural information. It was a beautiful day, sunny and warm, and ...

Otavalo to Las Tolas

... When we eagerly showed up today, expecting to fill our bellies for the day with the best food in town, he reported that unfortunately his gas pipes had exploded and as is typical in Ecuador, he said, the plumber still had still not shown up. He showed us all of his food that was going bad in the refrigerator and pointed out the empty dining room which normally would be filled with people at this time of day. We felt terrible, but now needed an alternate ...

Crater Lake

A travel blog entry by burkley


Ten of us decided to do a scenic hike around the Cuicocha crater lake overlooking the Cotacchi volcano. The crater lake was formed from an extinct volcano collapsing on itself. Locals say that the lake is still active as the water bubbles at times.

Pulling up on the side of the road the path was less than obvious but after a short five minutes we caught our first glimpse of the crater lake. It was freezing at this point with the ...

We went to the 'true' location and learned that when the Quechua people either killed a significant enemy or it was a person of honour, they removed the bones in the head and shrunk the skin and then wore it around their neck in honour.

    Having spent $40 on another Otavalo we were surprised to get 5 star treatment at the El Indio hostal, (the sister to the high class Hotel El Indio), in Sucre street just a few steps from the main market place for just $30. We had a spacious room with en-suite and a balcony. The hostal ws very clean with all the necessary towels, hot water, drinking water and services. A great hostal in the right place at the right price.
    Highly recommended.

    The staff are really friendly, and the hotel is very clean and in a very good location right near the market. However there wasn´t any hot water in our room. It was pretty cold at night in the room but the bed had lots of blankets and kept you warm. I would recommend this hotel as long as you understand that it´s definitely not luxurious. I would go there again though - cleanliness and friendliness are important and this hotel had both of those.
