Time for the Ecuador team to get back on the road and head north to Cayambe. They’ll stop at the home of famed Ecuadorean photographer, guide and my old friend, Jorge Anhalzer. He’ll show the team some of his spectacular photographs of landscapes and peoples of Ecuador. Then it’s lunch, with ‘cuy’ as the main course, at the home of guide Romulo Cardenas. Cuy is an Ecuadorean delicacy (guinea pig). Romulo’s wife, Patricia, is a super cook. Then, it’s north to Cayambe. Tomorrow will be another training day with some time on steeper ice with a summit attempt the day after.
As always, we’ll keep you posted. And, as promised, here’s the photo of the team in the dining room last evening at Hacienda San Augustin.
It’s a pretty special evening.
