Papallacta Hot Springs

We have landed at Termas de Papallacta, eaten lunch and are about to hop in the hot springs right outside the window of our cabin

After being in the Galapagos Islands (at sea level), we traveled back to Quito at 9000ft and staggered around breathless on our sea legs. Now we are at 11000ft and walking even a short distance has us both panting for air. I don't really know how much hiking we'll be doing except outside to the pools and back. That's OK. We've had a busy few days and a rest is much appreciated. The resort is gorgeous with lots of glasswork, high ceilings, slate tile flooring and plenty of nooks with fireplaces . The cabins are made to look like straw huts all lined up along wooden slatted pathways. We appear to be two of the only guests here. Peaceful!
