Miguel was ready to take us on a journey seen through a local´s eyes. Carlos, our new Argentinian friend joined us. We headed out of Cuenca toward the mountains, stopping at an orchid farm that works at saving the native orchids of Ecuador and are actually cloning plants. I couldn’t stop taking pictures. Then it was up the maintain to view a museum of Incan . artifacts and purchase unique jewelry. Lunchtime was in order so we went to the Mercado and ate a special pork dish where the whole pig is cooked in a special oven. After a delightful time visiting, we headed out of town to a weaving family home. This is a dying art as we learned that they are the only place that actually takes the local materials, preparing them by hand, including the natural dyes. I will explain that in another blog. We went on to the Inca ruins. What a day!
