We spent the last 8 days at Hacienda La Alegria.
It is near the famous Cotopaxi volcano, just 1 hour south of Quito
Daily live involved …..
…helping to feed the calves,
Mr Clark(e?!?!) the donkey (who has the softest nose in the world),
and the odd poncho.
We rode out every day
round the local farmland
in spectacular scenery (and sometimes clouds).
We did a 2 day/overnight trek to the cloud forest
with more spectacular scenery……..and more clouds,
sometimes over tricky terrain.
We stayed overnight here.
There was no electricity, so we ate by candlelight (Dog and Monk joined us!).
We needed a proper hosedown by the time we got home!
We visited various markets over the week mostly cooing over fluffy animals,
and gawping at some less fluffy ones.
James found some new headgear…….
…..which is probably an improvement over his ballooning bouffant barnet!
