Back In The Northern Hemisphere

After returning from the Galapagos I rested up a little in Quito, which despite being slightly "dodgy" I enjoyed very much. The old town is a delight of colonaded plazas and churches. A very colourful place. Once rested I headed north of the equator to the market town of Otavalo. This town has markets twice a week, but for me was too full of tourist tat!!

From Otavala I headed uphill early one morning to the caldera crater lake, Coicachi, which has two volcanic cones poking out of its surface. Later that day I changed country!
