leaving our home for the last few days
We ended up staying in Canoa longer than expected. Oh well, we didn't have any fixed dates, so it wasn't bad, furthermore Canoa is a nice place to be stocked, hahaha. As usual I woke up early. This time I wasn't thinking about writing, but about taking a hot shower, pfff. Unfortunately there wasn't electricity yet, oh no! And no gas either, so I took a shower with less cold water, hahaha. Poor my long hair...

I felt something strange in my eye and then I noticed it was a bit puffy, oh no! Would that stop me? No way! I didn't have any medication for it, so I will do a grandma secret, hahaha: put a bag of tea on it. I went downstairs to the kitchen and got a cup of water with a tea bag. Ok, I'd just have to take it easy for a while.

We were all packed since the day before, so today it was more about stuffing our things in the truck and say goodbye to Mau and his family.
holy cow!
Definitely, Mau & his family made the difference here, great! In order to go highlands, we had to go through another town called Pedernales. In order to save time, we didn't have breakfast here, we'd better wait until Pedernales where we'd make a quick stop.

In our way out to town, we stopped at a hostel that have a location in Quito, so Lisa & William could see if they have availability there. Pineapples in Cotacachi weren't as good as here, so we got some pineapples too, hehehe. Ok, now we were ready to start the drive. Hopefully it wouldn't be so long until Pedernales. We all knew that our final destination was Quito and that drive would take loooooong and roads weren't that good going highlands... Minigunther, would be the navigator ;)
