Machachi, Ecuador - March 27

We had an excellent dinner last night in this beautiful old hotel,  the "Estacion", and then a real breakfast of eggs, toast and fresh fruit this morning.  The surroundings are so nice and the people are so friendly, we decided to put our feet up for the day after 8 straight days on the road.
The central courtyard, doubling as moto parking.

The hotel grounds include a farm and some beautiful gardens.  The building is 180 years old and has been operated by the same family for five generations.
We've sorted out a small problem with the internet connection, so I can get caught up on the blog, and we've got access to a washer and dryer to get caught up on laundry while our gear dries out from yesterdays downpour.
Proprietor Jose, and some of the locals from around the farm.

Machachi Station, right outside the door.

Tomorrow we're heading for Tulcan, on the Colombian frontier.
