    Set on the edge of town, this beautiful posada is a gem that's worth seeking out. Beautiful gardens, wonderful friendly staff and great service. Maggie goes out of her way to make sure every guest feels welcome and has what they need.
    The restaurant is the absolute best in town--actually, there isn't anywhere in town to compare, but it would be great in Quito, too. It's just that good. Ask for the quinoa encrusted shrimp w/pineapple salsa, and for breakfast their included meal is superb, but for something different our last day we tried the quinoa pancakes with blackberry syrup. Ymmmmm.

    We stayed at La Posada Del Quinde for 3 nights - The grounds were very beautiful, location superb, staff wonderful! Maggie helped with anything we needed and even called to change our reservations in Quito so we could stay at her hotel an extra night.

    The dining area and fireplace were so comfortable- The smell of wood burning was so nice in the morning with coffee and fruits. The included breakfast was delicious and the dinners were also quite nice. I had an avocado cheese sandwich one night which really hit the spot. The owner is American but she hasn't raised prices like you'd think - Everything is reasonable for the location and compared to competition.

    I'd definitely recommend this hotel!

    ... 2 necklaces and 4 hours later, I've changed my mind... But haggling is so much fun! How could I resist?!

    I head back to the hostel and end up chatting with the owner, who is Ecuadorian but married to an English guy for over 30 years. She starts recounting her life story and can't stop, so kindly gives me a lift back down to town with my backpack while she finishes it. Next stop, Ecuador's ...

    ... earrings displayed. I was intrigued and quickly learned that the pendants were all coins that were cut out to only show the picture on the back. I started talking to the vendor and learned that he had travelled around the world bringing back coins from all over the world to have a bigger selection for tourists and travellers interested jn buying these unique souvenirs. I couldn't resist and bought a necklace before deciding that I had to physically ...

    After visiting the Basilica, putting our big bags in storage at Community and each just taking an overnight/ day pack we jumped in a taxi and headed to the north of Quito to get a bus to Otavalo. We'd decided to head up on the Friday afternoon to avoid an early start and queues on the saturday morning. Arriving in Otavalo after a 2 hour bus ($2.20) we took a taxi to Rose Cottages hostel which is about 3km out of town. The hostel ...

    ... scenery is spectacular as well. If Papallacta was to Chattanooga, then hot springs would be to trains. Trout to aquarium and so on. Both place are set in beautiful valleys surrounded by mountains. A big lake sits right out of town where most of the fishing takes place. Every restaurant advertised "truchas" on the menu. After walking around a bit, we return to Cumbaya. After another fine meal at El Palacio, Cindy took me to ...

    ... a few cloves of an ancient medicine called garlic. I attribute such a quick recovery to doing my best to understand my mind and body, paying absolutely no attention to nay-sayers, being active, and eating whole foods - with negligible consumption of alcohol, white flour or sugar. Some credit is also due to the main components of my natural med-kit: pharmaceutical grade wild oregano oil from Greece and activated charcoal. (If ...
