Ecuador — More on Alausí


Alausí

The town of Alausí is home to less than 6,000, but it exudes a charm that would fill a larger city. The buildings are colorful:

The food is colorful:

The train station is colorful:

The interior of the small nearby church was colorful:

Even the wares on the streets hit you with color:

I’m going to skip ahead and save the Devil’s Nose scenic railroad trip for next week. For now I’d like to mention a charming little place where we ate lunch immediately following our rail journey. This would be El Mesón del Tren (The Inn of the Train), just a few minutes walk from the train station:

Inside we were greeted with a pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff, and good food:
