Our last yoga class together…and putting our work over the week into motion. A chance to feel connected to nature, to our group, and to the inner work of our lives – moving from lines of energy and awareness brings a whole new level to the physical practice.
Sad to pack up and leave Casa Verde, and the family we now have there. Arturo once again provided us with a safe and delightful journey back to Quito (with just one nice ice cream stop in Salcedo, one of the towns reknowned for their ice creams!). We had good views of the Cotapaxi, Antisana, and Cayambe volcanoes along the drive. We came into the business section of Quito this time, right by the large Parque La Carolina – at 165 acres a beautiful large park in the city. Our hotel, the Dann Carlton was our luxurious treat for the night, along with its associated health club and the delightful steam room! A nice treat after roughing it all week!
We had the afternoon to explore and chill out, meeting for a drink in the lobby bar to start off the last evening together. We then walked over to the best restaurant in the area, Cosa Nostra! We were greeted by Ricardo, who remembered us from last year, and gave us such wonderful treatment. A welcome focaccia, along with a sumptuous Italian dinner was a great background for celebrating a truly wonderful week.
Panacea on the Road to Ecuador was full of fun, adventure, and many great memories. We hope that you will join us in 2015 for our next on the Road trips. In the preparing stages right now are Bali and Peru – Macchu Pichu. Please let us know if you are interested in joining us!
In love and light,
Mary, Peter, and Debbie
