Hola from the Otavalo market

Last night we stayed in Ecuador’s oldest hacienda, Guachala. After a good night’s sleep, we traveled north to Otavalo. Currently we’re enjoying a few hours in the world famous market, shopping for souvenirs and experiencing the indigenous culture. After lunch we’ll drive up to the climbers’ hut on Cayambe. The weather is beautiful right now, with a light breeze keeping it cool.

With any luck, we’ll awake around midnight and summit Cayambe a little after sunrise. Then we’re back to Quito for a final celebration dinner together before everyone heads back to the states. I’ll touch base tomorrow to let you know how our climb went.
