Mindo, a paradise in the forest

When I get to Mindo, it is night. It is then the sounds that overwhelm me everywhere. Toads, crickets, the sound of water flowing along the sidewalks, the rivers below and a bunch of other, indescribable, in the forest that surrounds this small town two hours from Quito.

The next morning, what pleasure of discovering this beautiful landscape. The fog hides the mountaintops all around, the sounds of birds mingle with those of the night. The air is humid, it feels good.

The “town”

Wander and stroll in and around the city. The paved roads are transformed very rapidly in red dirt path where the lush forest rebuke his right. We meet the people, serene. Everyone says hello and sometimes stop to exchange the latest news. We bought some fruit on the market. The taste of mangoes and papayas is a true delight.
