    Into the cloud forest where coffee grows

    November 23, 2017 in Ecuador ⋅ 🌫 5 °C

    Just one more morning in Quito. We made it through the thick traffic to one of the most impressive museums that we have been to: the “Chapel of Man” by Ecuadorian artist Oswaldo Guayasamin. It is filed by his representations of first and foremost Latin American pain, suffering, sadness, but also his works dedicated to other tragedies against humanity from around the world. Beside the art exhibition in a great piece of modern architecture, we could also visit his private house next to it. It contained more of Guayasamin‘s art and his collection of other artists’ works. Definitely worth a visit!

    We then made our way into the coffee plantations north of Quito. Nice to breathe some fresh air again. :-) we made it to our cabin in the forest and started the evening with making popcorn 🍿
