Leaving IES Abroad at 6:30 am this past Saturday, our Popular Arts of the Andes class made the 2.5 hour journey south to Quilotoa. This crater lake is one of the most beautiful natural sites I have seen in Ecuador. There was a constant flow of Ecuadorians and tourists hiking up and down, horseback riding along the trail and kayaking on the lake. We were able to hike down and ride horses back up. Despite the early morning and the long bus ride back home, it was a wonderful weekend adventure.
