Hola family and friends! This is Ed Ahyakak and this cybercast is coming from Papallacta.
Today is day three on our expedition. The first day we had a very nice tour of the old city of Quito. And day two we had an exciting acclimation climb of Ruco Pichincha. Now here at Papallacta we had a small hike up to Lake Baños (at 12,500 feet).
The weather here is around 60 degrees, with a little rain. Everyone is in good spirits and acclimating well. The hot spring pools feel great, especially after a good hike.
And I also wanted to shout out to my wife, Andrea and my three kids, Alexis, David, and Allison back at home in Fairbanks, Alaska…love you all, and I’ll see you soon. Adios!
