Relaxing at a coffee farmNovember 25, 2017 in Ecuador ⋅
We spent yesterday and today at our great little lodge in the Intag district.
Apart from reading, doing yoga, and hanging about in the hammock, we also hiked around the lodge into the cloud forest, looking at the nearby river, some waterfalls and “hunting” for the bright red cock-of-the-rock bird with Bertram’s binoculars.
Sandra’s accommodations that we found on Airbnb are really great! We have our own little cabin with a balcony overlooking the valley. The walls are all windows with either glas or mosquito nettings, so we are very much “in the open” while keeping the bugs out :-) And in the cloudless, dark sky we can see various star formations at night.
The climate here is also an improvement over the cloud forest experience in Colombia: it is much less hot here and - consequently - also less humid. Clouds still gather in the late afternoon, but at least you can walk out the door and not be immediately soaking wet :-)Read more
