... days in a row. And he is still super smiley and helpful and chatty. What a hero. AND the hostel was soooo lovely and the breakfast was yummy too. He told me about the 'teleferiqo' - a cable car that goes up a volcano, where you can see the whole of Quito. I went this morning in a taxi as my hostel is in the centre of town, and met some more travellers on the ride up as it takes about 20 minutes. The views were OUT OF THIS WORLD! I saw ...
... Cacti bloomed on the side of the road, valleys were in bloom of roses grown year round. I was reminded of Guatemala as green hills served as our backdrop. Small towns clung to hillsides and nestled in the valleys. The road swayed, we hung on. Upon arrival in Octavalo our driver dropped us off at a hotel, El Colobri which had been recommended to him.

... Otavalo we probably would have had another one! $35.00 each for an hour (what a deal!!) and he was worth every penny. So to anyone staying at Las Palmeras Inn in Otavalo… book a massage… you won’t be disappointed. Also ask them to book Christian as your taxi driver… he speaks excellent English and is a very nice young man. That’s it for today, we are shopped out and relaxed so it is time for bed. Buenos noches!! Blog you ...
