Gators heading to the jungle!

We have had an amazing several days in the Amazon Jungle. When we said technology free- I can honestly say there was NO service to be had.





When we arrived at Minga by canoe boat and after hiking up the hill- we were met with cold washcloths ( a little slice of heaven with the humidity) and a local tea.

Old Town Quito

We took a walking tour of old town Quito. We learned itโ€™s history, saw several churches and learned about the barbers history in Quito. They were more respected than doctors at the time and where known to sometimes heal those with fevers by cutting them and draining their bad blood. Who knew? – we decided we would stick with Advil! ๐Ÿ˜€
