... piece of artist's work that they plan to get framed and put up in their house, Kate also got a little carved stone turtle keyring and Andrew bought something that he thought was a carved wooden axe-shaped ornament that turned out to be a pipe. Emma and Mark also bought things but I've forgotten what they were.

Instead of going straight back to Quito, we then caught a bus to the town of Cayambe.

... the place. We then went to the Basillica to have a look around. Very grand. Here are some great pics of the stained glass windows. We ended up at a great Mexican place for dinner with the biggest burritos and of course a Margarita to to wash it down with. Today is a quiet day going to markets, swim and relax as it is still a little difficult to breath. We head off to Lima tomorrow for our Peru Adventure. We will be in touch ...

Day 76

A travel blog entry by destined2travel on Feb 06, 2014

... we head back to our room where there is a fire crackling away and hot water bottles warming our bed. Life is good!! The only downfall about this area and the altitude is the cold nights. Once the sun goes down it gets quite chilly here! Amb is back to freezing (which doesn’t make her very happy), but we stoke the fire and climb into our warm bed. We are so exhausted that we instantly fall asleep!! Buenos noches!! Blog you ...

Two instruments (excuse: I´m collecting instruments from every country I visit, plus the old man selling them was too adorable to say no to) - Two more bangles (excuse: I´m also collecting bracelets from every country I visit…) - A pair of earrings (excuse: they were cute…) - A new bag (excuse: see above) - Some Ecuadorian fabric (excuse… ) ...

... I picked up a very sweet Ecuadorian-American one dollar coin, in which the artisan had precisely removed the background behind the statue of liberty with a hand scroll saw.

Back in the big city of Quito, Ginenne transformed her Travellers to Hollywood hair with a visit to the salon at the Hilton. We followed that with a nice last dinner (as she flies back to Canada tmrw) then a ride home on the most crowded bus I've ever been on. This ...

    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!
