Our recent trip to southern Colombia and Ecuador

In August there were a bunch of other people on team with us so we were able to take a two-week vacation to see a little more of Colombia (the south this time) and to visit Ecuador. See below for pictures.

We went to stay with our friend Karen that Michele met at a workshop last year, and and visited the Tatacoa desert near Neiva with her. Then we continued on to San Agustin, where archeologists have discovered hundreds of tombs and funerary sculptures dating from between 900 BC and 1200 AD. We continued on to Popayan, Pasto and Ipiales, and then crossed the border to Ecuador. We spent several days in Otavalo, Ecuador hiking and visiting the indigenous market, and then went on to spend a day in Quito and to visit a monument at the Equator, which runs just outside of Quito.
