Day 22 – Puerto Lopez

Today we went to the village of Agua Blanca to hear about one of the oldest indigenous peoples in Ecuador.

Some of the artifacts that have been excavated date back farther than even the birth of Christ and the Incan civilization, such as the throne in the picture below.

Admittedly, ADD did kick in towards the end, so we broke out the ancient musical instruments. My childhood trumpet lessons paid off, I think.

While there, we also made a stop in the town’s sulfur lagoon. The mud exfoliates the skin, so naturally I took advantage of nature’s gift.

We wrapped up the day with yet another view of the sunset. This might have been the best one yet.
