After some enjoyable daytrips to the handicrafts market of Otavalo and the thermal pools of Papallacta, it was time for another overnight excursion. Mindo was our destination, a little tranquil village situated in the gorgeous cloud forest. After a two hour bus ride and a short walk, we found a really nice hostel:
Mindo itself has a beautiful little park and is very conscious of its unique environment, about which the local kids learn some more at school in a creative way:
The day after we all wanted to do the canopying, which was a great way to combine some adventure with seeing more of the precious surroundings of the village. We were enthusiastically guided to the start of the zip lines by a sweet little dog:
We put on the equipment, so the five of us and our friendly guide were ready!
It was great to ´fly´ over the valleys, sometimes even as Superman:
Another fabulous weekend came to an end. ¡Gracias a todos por unos días muy lindos!
