Leather street
We were back in Cotacachi at 4:30pm. When we arrived home, Shawn's worker was already waiting for him. Ufff, just on time. We didn't have further plans than driving to Quito later. Frank, Shawn's partner, would arrive at 11pm, so we had plenty of time. The boys wanted to take a nap, but the girls...

No way! Lisa and me would go shopping, yay! Shawn told me Cotacachi was the Leather capital and he couldn't have said it better, yay!!! The most important street is known as "Leather street", hahaha. There are many stores there. I told Shawn I was looking for boots and he recommended me a store, which was one of the biggest. They even have 3 locations on the same street, hahaha.
shopping bags, it was a productive day!


I wasn't sure what I would buy. I was only sure, I'd buy something, hehehe. I got 2 purses, a small thing for coins, but not boots yet. Then we saw the store Shawn was talking about. And I found them!!! Nice caramel high heels boots. Nice, here's my credit card, lol. I was about leaving the store, when I saw purple flat ones, I should get them! Hahaha. But I wasn't the only one who bought something, Lisa got a jacket, and 2 purses, hehehe. I know what my mom would say, when I'm back home: "why didn't you bring something for me?" Well, you wouldn't have to wait long mom.

After almost 2 hours we started to walk back home. In our way we were taking pics of the amazing volcano. The views were great! We arrived home and I had a huge smile with my big bags. What a productive day! hahaha. William exclaimed: "you girls, did a good work!" hahaha, yes, we were supporting the local economy ;)

Lisa finished packing and we started our way to Quito. We were thinking about having dinner with the guys before going to the airport. At least that was the plan, it wouldn't be that hard but the guys changed hostel... hope it didn' take us as long as last time to find their hostel :)
