Sometimes getting around in Ecuador can be a chore. A trip that you expect to be 5 hours of driving is really 8 hours. Then when you factor in stops for lunch and sightseeing, it drags out to 12 hours. Such was the case with our trip to the beautiful little town of Alausi. Once we were there, however, it was all worth while. Alausi is a quaint little mountain town with friendly people and stunning views in every direction.
