Waking at the lovely Hacienda San Luis, we soon found ourselves in the midst of the Saturday Otavalo market.  Full of local crafts, raw chickens, entire cooked pigs and about anything you could imagine. We wandered around the vibrant market doing a bit of shopping and a lot of looking around. 

After a fun morning of exploring the market we traveled to the Cayambe hut making it most of the way on wheels before finishing up the approach on foot.  Here at the hut we celebrated Brad’s birthday and turned in to get some rest before our training day tomorrow.  A fun day for sure and great to get to the base of our first big climb.
