No, the little one was allowed inside the car today. Jim stayed at the back with the dogs to prevent them jumping off the truck on stops.
The farm is about an hour drive south of Cuenca and is a piece of heaven. The house is very nice, airy and warm. The area in which the farm is located is known for it's slightly warmer and dryer climate as Cuenca. It's really beautiful there. The farm is operated by a local family that keep their own sheep, pigs, chicken, ducks and two dogs. We brought two new ducks to the farm. Unfortunately, one disappeared after just 2 hours. We believe that Fredo killed it and Lulu ate it once it was dead. The second one (it was called Thommy) survived without a shock and tried to integrate itself into the group of ducks. The success is not yet visible :)
"Inside" the farm house. Flower pots may be a bestseller in this house ;)
Jim ready for a walk with our new manchetes.
Oh, cool, a screw top...
One of the river crossings on the road to the farm. There is also one without a bridge.
When returning from buying gas, the only car that could possibly come the other direction (Edmundo) actually came and I had to make space. I made a bit too much space and the ditch pulled the car to the side. It took us a bit to get back out but finally (once the tractor was in place) it was a matter of seconds. When driving remotely in Ecuador, a winch on the front bumper may make sense. I will keep that in mind, once I have my own car :)
The next day, Sole's sister brought another two ducks for Thommy not to be too lonely. They were called Donald and Sole. They will have a few nice months before we will cook them. Yummy.... :)
