Have we really been in Ecuador for three weeks? In some ways it feels like three days; in others, three months. We spent the bulk of the past one in Quito taking advantage of great internet and catching up on work — and torrential downpours played along by allowing us to spend the days indoors guilt-free. Eventually we caught a bus to Mindo and soaked up every possible minute of this beautiful nature-lover’s playground.
In some ways Ecuador has felt quite dream-like (I’ve really been here for three weeks?), as we’ve dedicated a lot of time here trying to figure out what comes next — Anders looking for a summer diving job before starting a degree in the fall and me trying to figure out my next major moves. Much has changed since I last made a big travel plans announcement, and I hope to share a peek behind the scenes sometime this week.
In the meantime, onto the Photo of the Week candidates!
Beautiful butterflies in Mindo
Wild orchids by magnifying glass
Finding patterns… nature is the best designer
We probably saw over one hundred hummingbirds in Mindo!
Which photo is your favorite? And can you tell which one was taken with my iPhone?
