a lecture about how to handle the horses, and wearing the typical
"Chagra" attire, we begin the ride through the majestic "paramos"
along many trails where, in a mixture of legend and history, we
can admire brave bulls, local birds, the wild fauna, and the
marvelous landscape of the Ecuadorian highlands. . .
early in the morning, we begin to climb the volcano crossing
vast "paramos" covered by the cold breath of the Andes

landscape that conjugates valleys, mountains, and neighboring
volcanoes in one single image. . .
