Our second day we spent in Otavalo. First there was a walk during which Wilson showed us a strange sound phenomenon too hard to explain. Rachel, a young nurse from Philadelphia, participated in everything just like Thomas and Parker. The three of them kind of stood out in our group, though every single person was very nice. We went to a place called Peguche, known for it's fabulous waterfall.
Next we wandered around a market that is one of the largest in South America.
We also stopped at a home for a demonstration of musical instruments made on the premises.
In the afternoon we drove to Papallacta in the Andes Mountains where we settled into a hotel with three hot spring pools. The boys enjoyed the pools and then after dinner all four of us had private massages. Neither Thomas nor Parker had ever had a massage before.
I'll end this post with a few shots of local color that I captured walking from one place to another that day.
