Ahhh...beautiful Mindo....2 hours north of Quito.....
a small town of 2000 - we arrived to a religious festival celebrating their patron saint San Vincente, which included races for kids climbing slippery lamp posts and a strongman competition in the middle of street!
fantastic tour company called Birds of Paradise who made us feel right at home
our cabana/hostel was in an orchid garden with hummingbirds who buzzzed and zipped to and from their feeders as we ate breakfast...super cute
Ziplining across the hilltops - 13 lines of fun in the sky!
Walked to a waterfall and discovered a concrete waterslide in the middle of the bush.....a speedy flying leap into the river! Skanky played action man jumping off waterfalls and flying through the air!
