OK! Back to Ecuador. Man, I'm slow. This was a trip commemorating Kimbo's 40th trip around the sun.... we were trying to decide where to go... and we went from bike touring in Germany to just going to Ecuador. Which was awesome. Many thanx to Kimbo's folks for watching our boys while we were abroad. We made sure to Skype with them most nights and the boys and grandparents did an amazing job.
|After arrival at Quito, I rented a car (around midnight), and somehow navigated our way to our AirBnB, close to the airport.... we only managed with the the help of Google Map's offline function.|
|arriving at Papallacta in the Chevy Spark. This thing was a hoot...|
|and right away we decided to go check out the property by going on a short hike. But the clouds were pretty low, so we couldn't see any of the big peaks...|
|and the little waterfall we walked up to...|
|looking back to the valley|
|and back for our dip!|
|The hot tubs were pretty amazing...|
|sweet door egh?|
|and to Quito to start our adventure!|
|Some pics of typical Ecuadorian food... they love their hominy|
|typical lunch consists of a meat with fries and rice...|
Check out these podcasts about randonneuring... they feature the SFRandonneurs and the second episode is partly about the Fort Bragg 600k that I did a few months back. I remember that lady in the campsite talking to everyone... I was drinking a beer and resting I think...
