I'm ready to post a couple of photos from my visit to Barbara's in Ecuador, but I can't remember where the SM photo site is.  Could someone point me to the right place and I'll upload the photos this morning.  Thanks!

I just uploaded 3 pictures of Barbara Wilson's restaurant, house, and coffee 
plantings in Mindo, Ecuador, a small town in a nature preserve area with 
beautiful flowers, birds, etc.  They're in the coffee travels section of the 
SM community photo site.

Wow, the restaurant looks pretty shabby. I will definitely post some
updated photos when we finish. I have some interior photos on my new
website, if you are interested in seeing a prettier view. Be nice, I'm
still working on the site too. http://elquetzaldemindo.comBarbara

I didn't think it looked shabby at all, quite the contrary.  The inside of 
the restaurant is beautiful with gorgeous wood tables.  My daughter fell in 
love with the way the restaurant opened up to the outdoors with views of 
trees all around and fresh breezes flowing through.  Unfortunately, I didn't 
take any photos of the inside at all and I'm not sure photos can do it 
justice.  The building is still obviously under construction which shows 
clearly in the photo I took from the garden looking back at the house - it 
should look amazing when it's done as it's set among trees.  Barbara has 
done a terrific job with the menu and many of the fresh fruits and 
vegetables come from the garden behind the house.  She also makes her own 
ice cream and cones - wonderful!

How far from Quito is the restaurant?  I'll be in Ecuador again maybe twice
next year.  Anyone who can drive in Ecuador is my hero.

It took our Ecuadorian driver (a madman!) about 90 minutes to get there.  It 
would have taken me 2-3 days because I never would have passed any of the 
trucks or cars he passed and would still be going slowly, slowly behind them 
too terrified to ever take a chance to pass.  Ecuadorian driving has to be 
seen to be believed.  Most drivers pass on the narrow winding 2 lane 
mountain roads by driving down the center line while both directions of 
traffic move to the sides to make room.
Mindo is a gorgeous nature preserve in the cloud forest several thousand 
feet lower than Quito on the way to the ocean.  If it hadn't been for 
Barbara, I might not have known to go there.  The setting is beautiful with 
birds and flowers everywhere you look and is well worth a trip from Quito.

I think I would have ended up frozen - I know I'd never make it up there!
But it sounds gorgeous, and well worth ... the terror...
scary heights... insane drivers... not something I can handle very well...
but it sounds so incredible...

Sounds similar to traffic here in china.  Three lanes of highway can hold 9
lanes of traffic, the 3 lanes, 2 shoulders plus 4 lanes centered on the
lines. If the highway has no center barrier, then you have another 9 lanes
available to you. Pass where ever necessary. Doesn't matter if there is
opposing traffic on the other "9 lanes".

12) From: Barbara Wilson
Most of the time it takes less than 1.5 hours in a car ( no madman
necessary). The bus takes 2.5 hours. I find this drive much more calm than
driving in other areas in Ecuador. It is a gorgeous drive through the
mountains. Mindo is a very popular tourist destination with birding tours,
beautiful waterfalls, butterfly gardens that make it a fun day or weekend
trip. And now that there is an excellent restaurant with real coffee, I
suppose Mindo will become even more popular.  Everyone is invited to
tour our mini coffee plantation and I am hoping to set up a place to
process the coffee so people can see how that is done. I am planning to be
back there in February or March of next year and I am not sure how long I
will stay.  I am planning coffee events so, let me know if you are
interested. Also listmember Juan Jacome is in Quito so be sure to visit
him at Caffesasso have some outta this world espresso and eat at the Boca
de Lobo restaurant.  Sorry if this all sounds like an
advertisement...it is totally sincere. =

Hey Gregg, and everybody else planning to come to Ecuador, please drop me a
line when you're here, I have a small coffee op inside a very hip restaurant
in Quito, I strive to make the best espresso with local only beans, don't
spend as much time in there as I would like to but it works on its own. I am
working with a few farmers across the country to get the best coffee
possible, paying the best prices directly to them.
Cheers

Don't forget the passing on the oncoming side of the road when going  
around blind corners, but be sure to honk the horn!
