The last time we left town on a cloudy day we were met by steady rain, puddles and mud, and ended up calling a remise to take us home as soon as we got to our destination (and paid $35 for the pleasure of two hours of riding around). But since this is day nine of Pete’s twelve-day trip to Ecuador, I knew Lou and I had to risk another rainy day and get out of the house.
We took the bus to the Circuito Chico for the same five-mile hike we did in November. It was fun to see how things had changed in two months, and with so much bird song it was like walking through a giant aviary. Take a listen: 45 sec and 20 sec.
