Quito: Otavalo Market and Cuicocha Lake
Renee's Ecuadorian Adventure
It was beautiful to see a slice of life in the rural Ecuadorian highlands. The Otavalo market was wonderful for souvenir shopping and people watching. I was completely taken with the Hacienda Pinsaqui - being there is like stepping back in time. The accommodations and grounds were absolutely charming. It's the sort of place where a person could truly rest and relax. Cuicocha Lake was lovely too - there's a trail you can hike all the way around the lake. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to do that, but it's now on my to do list.
