The highway over the pass from Quito went through clouds and verdant tropical jungle.

The town is quite small, and, at this time of the year, perpetually wet.

This is a cable car that flies for 530 meters way high about the river and jungle. It is a breathtaking flight over flowering jungle.

Toucans hung out around the balcony (and bird feeder with bananas)

Hummingbirds were everywhere. I was getting dive bombed the day I wore red.

    Extraordinary place! Will the constant rain be depressing? I can’t imagine how it would be but then we see so little of it in the Wimmera these days :(

    Are you finding a place to call “home”?

      1. Thank goodness you are okay and thank you for finding a moment to reply to me. I also follow earlybirdinecuador, he and his wife live in Montanita and I am truly hoping they are okay. What a terrifying experience.
