Apparently Cliff was up sick all night last night in every imaginable way. Thankfully he is feeling good enough now to make the trek back to Quito. We went into the famous Otavalo Market today for a couple hours. Tons of vendors and everything was priced really well. The merchants were easy to bargain with. I only had 20 bucks on me, but thankfully there was an ATM on the street that actually gave me money. Ah the wonders of technology.
Andy O came pretty close to buying a beautiful electric guitar but ended up with a nice Charango. The sun was out most of the time we were in the market and it got pretty warm. But suprisingly, even though we were right near the equator, it never got above 85 degrees. Up in the mountains it felt like it was in the 40s or 50s at times. I got some little stuff to bring home to the family at the market, and we headed back to check out of Puerto Lago.
