Chimbaloma Finca Casa [04:30]
Chimbaloma is above Otavalo, Ecuador. South America´s largest artesano market. Daily fruit and vegetable vendors line the streets. On Saturday´s, fifteen blocks of vendors of all kinds. The famous poncho market attracts travelers worldwide. Affordable incredible varieties of vegetables, fruits, breads, and all else imagineable keeps food bills low. Relaxed. $5 electric, $10 every three months H20 are the bills. The institutions of control do not exist here. No stress. Our palace looks west on Mt. Imbabura(15100ft). Mt. Cotacachi(4944) is east. Various dormant volcanoes, elevations above 12000ft, fill the horizon. This is paradise. Six bedrooms are currently unused. Ten total. An open canvas if you are an artist, builder, or farmer. Neighbors are farmers. Families of old(most don´t speak Spanish, they speak Quechua), young and all their animals. Cows, llamas, sheep, rabbits, guinea pigs, horses, burros, dogs, chickens, birds, cats surround. This is not an ex-pat community. This is the real deal with folks whom work and live on the land. Located above the Peguche waterfall, a sacred Incan site, the waters flowing from Lago San Pablo. Agato is the closest to Chimbaloma with internet, small tiendas, soccer fields, and farms. I´ve never seen a cop, cop car, or fascist official here. The communidad takes care of it´s own problems. It´s own people. Very refeshing knowing the state of military control systemic in the western world currently. We travel around Ecuador, Colombia ...
