Seeking Heaven

So, it’s kinda a long story. Filled with twist and turns, but let’s just say i decided to go back to the vulcano in the secound post (Pululahua-pronounsed Lafafulalulufalula, or that’s how I pronounce it) and spend the night. However, i got behind schedule and ended up not getting to the park until it was already dark. (it seems buses dont always go where you want them, and taxi drivers have never heard of Lafafulalulufalula.) but much latter i finally made it to the park, down the crater, and to my hostel. So the next morning I saw this.

The weather was very nice, so I went on a hike around the crater. Unfortunately, the map was a satilight photo from google maps which someone drew lines on with windows paint. However i did find/make some cool trails, and the views weren’t bad either.

The many detures aloud me to check out the local flowers and fauna. I saw these along the trail.

When the spanish arived in ecuador they built this hacienda. It fell to ruins after one of the revolutions.

It looked like the government was in the process of restoring the place.

The hostel was pretty cool. Very nice for south america.

The garden at the hostel atracted several types of huming birds, including this one.

Over all Pululahua was very nice and relaxing and sometimes the only sound you hear is the wind in the grass, that and the donkeys. Overall an amazing place.

Take it easy,

Ps: I realy need to figuare out how these buses work. There’s nothing like seeing the sunset on the “other” side of town.
