No English but next door happy to translate, basic but large rooms, we had an early trip but the proprietor was happy to provide a 6am breakfast. Clean and central location. Good value for the price.

When we got back in to Mindo we called in to El Quetzal, a famous local chocolatier, to refuel with some chocolate brownies and a chocolate volcano, yum yum. The next morning we headed back to Quito and on to Banos. Banos is 3 hours away from Quito but unfortunately the bus from ...
... sea lion pup. The pup wobbled over, walked across Ms Kobes as she was sitting in the sand, and lay next to her. The same pup arose and began walking again with an initiative. I sat down in its straight path, and the pup seemed excited. It continued to approach me, climbing up into my lap, happy to have someone to lie on. Those moments were the best of my life. I felt a connection to life, to this strange new world where every ...
