Pululahua and El Mitad del Mundo

Today we went to see one of the few inhabited volcanic craters in the world- at Puluhua. The fresh breeze that rose out of the crater was beautiful, as well as the view. There is a mud path that you can take down but it was partially washed out because of all the rain.

We visited the Equator too, which is an entire attraction, with several museums, shops and restaurants even though the real Equitorial line is a little ways away. You could guess that Ecuadodr is named after the Equator.
Besides eating their first Ecuadorian empanada, the highlight was playing in the amazing kids park.

It's so beautiful. I hope you're able to soak it all in. Saw your husband at Pecha Kucha last night. It was good to hear from him how you're doing.

Feeling much better. Wish I didn't have to contend with the monthly thing immediately after getting over altitude. Oh, I have a sore throat.
