While in Quito, Ecuador, my wife got hit with a pretty swiftly moving bout of travelers sickness. Unfortunately for her, we also had a four-hour car ride on our schedule that we couldn’t re-book. Being the trooper she is, my wife gritted her teeth and hopped in the car for the drive to Otavalo.
We had no real agenda when we arrived; the equatorial sun was hot and bright, and the mountainous air wasn’t muggy and hot as other parts of Ecuador. It was perfect for her to lay in the sun under a blanket and rest. Between the hummingbirds, butterflies, flowers and llamas “cutting the grass,” I kept myself pretty busy while she was recovering.
