As we posted on Twitter, we went for a short 2-day recharge in the quiet town of Ibarra about 2 hours north of Quito last week. It’s a small, tranquil town and we basically rested, ate, read books, prayed and also played our newly bought Ecuador edition of Monopoly.. haha.. The beautiful scenery and quiet time to seek some spiritual, emotional and physical rest after the hectic month of May was well-needed and reminded us once again of how beautiful a country Ecuador is.
We also visited another even smaller town, San Antonio (10 mins from Ibarra), a place that’s famous for woodcraft, upon the suggestion of an Ibarrian we met in the hotel. 🙂 It’s nice and there are quite some interesting stuff there! 🙂
Thank God for the rest and tranquility! 🙂
