After a failed attempt to try to go to the cost this weekend.... We decided to take a day trip to Otavalo. I went with Mom dad and Melissa but because we have a small car the boys took the bus. The girls were kind of sick this week so they wanted to rest up today and they have already been with their familys.
It was a 2 hour car ride... Usually only about 1 hour but traffic was horrible becasue of the holiday.
When we arrived we had to find the boys in the maze then we were completly overwhelmed. There are hundreds of stalls with things. And they all want you to buy from them.
The colors were magnificent there. There was so much to see and so much to buy.
They have everything to textiles, to paintings, to little knick knacks, to food and grains.
We had a little lunch then it started to pour! And it rained and rained and rained....
The god thing is that i got some Christmas shopping done! And I had Fun shopping.. that never happens.
We decided that we felt bad for the boys taking the bus so we all crammed into the car for the ride home. Not only were we squeezing but we were all soaking wet and exhausted!
To break up the trip we stooped in a little place to have bizcoches and hot coco. The bizcoches are an Ecuadorian biscuit. They are really dry and are the best when soaked in the hot coco!
