Ecuador Volcanoes: Beren & Team Exploring the Otovalo Market

The team is currently exploring Otovalo, the market town near the base of Cayambe. The sea of brightly colored goods in the town square is a fantastic place for a little cultural souvenir shopping. After our outing, we will head towards our next climbing objective, Cayambe. With a positive trend in the weather, it seems as though all the crossed fingers up North have made a difference. Keep it up amigos and we will check in from the hut!

Someone’s missing. Oh yes, it’s me!
I hope you guys are feeling fit, staying away from flu bugs and getting stronger and more motivated with each passing day. I am rooting for you.
