    The very best Otavalo has to offer.

    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.

What a fun thing to do !! We saw how the first people discovered the area, how the French explorers found the centre - actually 240m off centre - but with modern day GPS it is now dead centre!! We did a series of experiments with magnets, eggs, ...

    ... house looking for wolf spiders and those caterpillars with two glowing headlights on their rumps that sound like a cartoon character, but they are real. We stop to admire the full moon, and to nab the friendly orange kitten and smuggle him into our house, where we all pile onto the big pillowed loveseat and watch a movie on the computer while the fire crackles.

    Most of the time the wi-fi blows out before the movie ends, or ...

    I'm tired. I wrote for too many hours today but probably getting close to 10k editor ready.

    The clouds dissipated somewhat, the sun was shining for a good part of the day and the mountains that surround Otavalo were visible for the first time since I’ve been here. Pretty fab. I will post some pics.

    I wrote far too long this morning. The apple, almonds and raisins were long gone ...

    Otavalo is an enormous market. A pretty typical market that boasts jewelry, fresh produce, read-to-eat meals, art, clothing, scarves, etc, etc. The difference with this market and others that ...
