butterfly breeding farm y ziplining

Today started with an early breakfast. After that, we drove 2 and a half hours to Mindo, where we stopped at the butterfly breeding farm. We got to see 25 different species of butterflies, several of which landed on our shirts, hats, and watermelon-covered fingers. After that, we drove to the Mindo rain forest canopy and ziplined down 13 different lines. The view was spectacular. We were about 50 meters above the trees, sometimes even going through the foliage. I got to try making my own pizza tonight at a place called Archies, and it was delicious. So far this trip has been amazing. I am especially excited for hiking and biking around the Cotopaxi national park tomorrow and camping next to the Incan ruins. With the wool and alpaca poncho I found, the nights will not be as cold.
