Cotacachi Progress

Cotacachi progress is wonderful.

How the world turns.

Sometimes in the US, everything seems to be falling apart and it is hard to get things done.

Merri and I just returned to Cotacachi Ecuador and after just being away a couple months, so much good is happening!  There is Cotacachi progress everywhere.

First there is more improvements in the roads. The main shopping street, Tenth of August has been totally redone with brick pavers and wonderful indigenous designs. Here is a shot I took from one end of Tenth of August

This gives the district such a holiday feel!

Here is Tenth of August in the middle of the village, near our hotel El Meson de las Flores.

We have progress at El Meson as well. We are continually upgrading something.   This month we have focused on the courtyard…

and the courtyard flowers.  We have a new gardener and his efforts are really starting to show.

The hotel is packed. 50 delegates just arrived for our course tomorrow. There is quite a buzz going on here in Cotacachi.
