About Me

My photo

I´m Michelle and I am traveling in Latin America. I have always wanted to travel here and I finally left my home in Boston, MA in July 2013. I have been traveling since then, working here and there and continuously realizing that the world is filled with opportunities for exploration. I hope to travel for a long time but I always find a cozy place to stay for some time. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions I am more than happy to take you up on them. Live long, travel far, love often.

Quito, ECUADOR: La Mitad del Mundo y el mercado en Otavalo

When we arrived in Ecuador we knew that we would have to go to the exact location of the Middle of the World. Balance some eggs and such. Well, we were also soo lucky enough to be accompanied by our Colombian tour guide, Juanpi! (Juan Pablo). He was soo eager to come along with us that we gladly accepted, and I was relieved to take a break from translating for my unilingual sidekick.


Walking towards the middle of the world.


Our guide, Juanpi. We let him take a short smoke break.

Middle of the world.


Then the real middle of the world...just a block away from the "Museum" of the middle of the world.

Trying to balance in the middle of the world, it was a bit of a challenge. 

Balancing an egg, also quite hard to do, but doable. 
Maria got it!

The animal market in Otavalo. Many animals for sale.


A lake we visited after, very pretty/
