So, it was our maiden voyage today. A short 15km to a “mecca” of cyclists in Ecuador: la Casa de Ciclistas de Santiago. We’ve had nothing but rants and raves about this place. People come to pass a day, and leave a week later… Its because they are SO welcoming!
Santiago is a bicycle mechanic who’s been welcoming cyclists onto his land for 22 years!! HOW COOL! So we are staying next to a pair of travellers from France (Paul) and the States (Marie). There are also Joana (left) from Scotland and Axel from Germany… everyone looks so nice and friendly!! They are all on the road since a long time, and we have a lot to learn from them.
