Location: The Andes
Today was our first day in the Andes and we are staying at the Black Sheep Inn. This place is so cool, it’s an ecolodge and is completely vegetarian. After breakfast we split up into two groups. One group went to paint a school building and the other group went horse back riding up the mountain. My group went horse back riding. The view is spectacular. It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before. There are mountains as far as you can see. A lot of the horses we were riding on had babies and they followed their moms all the way to the top. The man also had a little dog that tagged along. When we got to the top we had lunch on the side of the mountain and went on a small hike after. Right before we left the clouds rolled in and it got so foggy. The temperature constantly changes from hot to cold. After the hike we continued down the mountain. When we got to the end we thanked the man for an amazing day. I would definitely come back to see this view again. We also got to buy Alpaca sweaters which were so cool and we finally got to do laundry this afternoon! Today is by far one of the best days on this trip.
