We stayed in a very nice hotel, Hosteria La Andaluza, in Riobamba. We were entertained at dinner by musicians. There were all sorts of artifacts scattered about. The table between the beds in our room was propped up by an old Singer treadle for a sewing machine. And we saw a bunch of these in different places. (My desk at home is propped up by one as is a plant table on the porch of our Gloucester house.) It was a picturesque place but we spent very little time there other than the night. The food was good too.
