Venture out of the Rainforest
Sacha Lodge - Ecuadorian Amazon

Exploring the areas around Sacha LodgeExploring the areas around Sacha Lodge (Barbara Ash)
In the morning at 6:30 our luggage was picked up. Thank goodness for the waterproof bags, since it was raining buckets.

After breakfast we headed for the dock where we were given ponchos. A short ride across the lake brought us to a very soggy, muddy hike to the Napo river. There we were given dry ponchos.

It was a long wet ride to Coco and we got stuck on some sand banks, but the Captain always managed to get us off.

In Coco we were once again escorted to the Sacha Lodge house for refreshments and waited to go to the airport.

My ride awaited at the other end and I was taken back to the Hostal. A warm shower and a rest made me feel human again.

Tomorrow I would be picked up to go to the market in Otavalo.

I decided to have a drink at the Hostal since I didn't have an early wake up call.. I asked for a margarita but they didn't have the ingredients. Then I tried for a vodka gimlet, that wasn't available either. So I stayed sober, ha ha. The Hostal was bought by a couple from Italy about seven months ago and they were very nice. The next night when I came back from my tour they said they had bought the ingredients for the margarita. It was very good but they didn't charge me since I was the guinea pig for the first one they made.
