|sad some of the plaques were stolen or missing|
|these figures were at the base of the cathedral, maybe some natives despised the church|
After an hour at the church we drove about 30 minutes to the boarder of Ecuador expecting another inefficient Latin customs but we were wrong. Leaving Colombia only 2 steps, exit stamp and cancel the car permit and the buildings were beside each other. Ecuador side was just as easy the hole process took about 30 minutes because of the line waits.
Now were in Ecuador, we drove about 30 minutes to the town of Tulcan, because Ji, wanted to visit a cemetery. I know sounds strange because we not visiting anyone but I arrived at the gate I understand why she wanted to come here. Its a huge cemetery with nice graves but what caught my interest was the grooming of the bushes into arch walls and figures. Glad we made this stop now on our way to Otavalo for the great Saturday market.
|traditional graves but in the background the apartment style|
|these graves looked more prominent|
