Quito to Otavalo, Ecuador

Up early today and then had breakfast at 7.30am in the hotel and left at 8.00am on the trip that will finally take us to La Paz, Bolivia, arriving on 1st July. Today is fine and cool in Quito and there is no traffic because it's Sunday. We first set out today to the north to visit Otavalo, the place we visited two weeks ago on the way into Quito. On the way north we stopped at the Equator, latitude 0:00 degrees. As we had been to this place two weeks ago, we didn't do the tour again, but the new people on the trip did. We then headed further north and by about 12 noon, we reached Otavalo. After checking into the hostel, we went for a walk into the town to do some shopping in the market. After we had done our shopping we walked back four blocks to the hostel and just vegged out for the rest of the day. Dinner tonight was at a local fast food (grilled chicken, salad and chips) restaurant. Very tasty. Back at the hostel before 7:00pm. Off to the jungle tomorrow for 3 nights. Probably no internet till Banos later in the week.
