  • On the Equator On the Equator

    • From: bevandlee
    • Description:

      The Equatorial Monument just outside of Quito, Ecuador really isn't located on the exact center of the globe. Advanced GPS equipment determined that it is actually a short distance from here. All the same, it is still fun to stand straddling the line with one foot in the northern hemisphere and the other in the south.

  • Maria the Diva Maria the Diva

    • From: jacquie whitt
    • Description:

      On their quest to find out more about the birds of Ecuador, Adios Adventure Travel arranged for the Virginia Beach Friends School 4th & 5th grade girls to get up at 4 am to arrive at the La Paz reserve, near Mindo, Ecuador, just to see the famous Andean Cock of the Rock.  After glimpsing the colorfully red bird, they continued their march through the jungle where they saw an even more rare bird, the GHiking through the jungleMaria the Divaiant Antpitta. These birds are rarely seen and our girls saw “Maria” who was coaxed out of the forest by a local caretaker  with a plastic box filled with worms.  Maria is so spoiled now, she will only eat “clean” worms.  Even the insides of the worms have to be expelled to get the dirt out.  Maria has become a diva and fans can buy t-shirts with her name on them.

  • Traveling without chicken nugg Traveling without chicken nuggets!

    • From: jacquie whitt
    • Description:

      We did it!  We spent over a week in Ecuador with a group of 10 year old girls and no chicken nuggets, nada!  Somehow, the girls did not wither away and we enjoyed 3 full meals (and many snacks) every day.  Adios Adventure Travel set up a special itinerary for kids and the food was awesome. TPampallacta he girls learned alot about Andean cuisine.
      The hands-down winning dish was Locro de Papa.  Cream of potato soup.  We ate it nearly every day.  It usually comes garnished with lettuce, avocado and maybe hard-boiled eggs.  The girls slurped it up willingly and learned how to order it themselves.
      As the week progressed, they became more comfortable practicing their beginning Spanish words and ordering food was the perfect opportunity to interact with local people.  They also loved the juices.  Guanava was a hard-sell, because it doesn't look or taste like anything we have in the U.S.  But Blackberry juice was popular.  So we tried Blackberry and Guanava mixed.  When poured together, the white guanava stays separated from the dark, rich color of the blackberry, so what arrives is a beautiful, parfait-looking drink.  (Juices do not come canned, frozen or bottled.  We noticed that our servers often had purple fingers from handling the berries during the juicing process.)
      Once the first girl took the plunge, the others were sold.  (who needs chicken nuggets?)  It was the same with the locro.  Our meals took place in restaurants and hostels surrounded by jungle or perched on the edge of a crater.  One meal was in a restaurant near Mindo and we ate while surrounded by glass.  On the other side, tanagers and other local bird species dined on bananas while we munched on lunch.   One step outside the back door and the girls were confronted with several species of hummingbirds flitting around a couple of strategically-placed feeders.  (the girls were up and down so much during this meal, I thought they were transforming into the creatures they were observing!)
      On our last day in Quito, we walked from our hotel to Libri Mundi, a local bookstore.  We found some birding books and surprisingly, the girls all wanted to take home an Ecuadorian cookbook.
      Here's our favorite recipe for you to try:   (taken from The Ecuador Cookbook, by Chrisiti Buchanan and Cesar Franco
      1 # potatoes, peeled and diced
      2 tbl oil
      1/4 Cup chopped green onion
      1 potato peeled and diced
      3/4 Cup milk, cow or soy
      1 tsp salt
      4-8 lettuce leaves (washed)
      1/3 pound cheese (Ecuadorian cheese is white and mild, but use whatever you like)
      1 ripe avocado
      Saute diced potatoes with oil & onion.  When onion is browned, add water until potatoes are just covered.  Add 1 more cup of water and bring to a boil.  Stir in cubed potato.  Reduce heat.  Simmer and stir until cubed potato is tender and diced potatoes are dissolved.  (about 20 min)
      Meanwhile, line deep soup bowls with lettuce leaves.  Slice cheese into 4 thick pieces (or crumble) and place in 4 bowls.  Quarter and peel avocado and place in bowls.  Cover with soup and serve.
      For those who enjoy zesty foods, consider adding salsa picante or your favorite hot sauce.


      ¡buen provecho

  • Panama Hats at Homero Ortega, Panama Hats at Homero Ortega, Cuenca, Ecuador

    • From: barbtkac
    • Description:

      The trip from Quito to Cuence via Riobamba is breath taking and more than I ever could have imagined it to be.  The hat factories in Cuenca are certainly a must and to see them grading the raw hats is an education as well.  By the way Panama hats are made in Ecuador.

    • Description:

      Ecuador is an amazing country to visit.  Quito is a city of 2 million people and the old city is a World Heritage site with over 80 churches dating to colonial times. Just visiting around Quito is worth the visit.  Most people go to the Galapsgos Islands but do not miss this countries interior including Riobamba and Cuenca which is another World Heritage site and one of the cleanest cities I have ever visited.
