We took the local bus for a couple of hours north to Otavalo, famous for its Saturday market. However not being able to wait till saturday and needing to buy some tat for Simone´s school we had to chance it on a Wednesday
The Plaza de Ponchos market was still full of stalls so we spent a few hours shopping away and came a way with a few carrier bags full of stuff for the school. We had an almuerzos lunch which basically was a 3 course meal and drink for $2.
We arrived back in Quito to torrential rain and thunderstorms which has just being typical of the weather in mainland Ecuador. One minute sun and next minute you are soaking!
