Quito End of Summer Party at a Beautiful Hostal in Tababela
You can either join for the official party or even stay over night - the hostal will be closed just for InterNations). Everyone who stays can join us for a hiking event - more information can be found here as this event is joined with Neil McIver who will take care of the overnight / camping and hiking event done that same day on the hostal with this official event: https://www.internations.org/activi … (By the way you can join the hiking and over night stay at the hostal even if you are not an Albatross members, just call the hostal and reserve a room and join the event the next day or bring your tent)
On the 25 August, we will have a 1st meeting point at 16:30 (we all wait until 17pm and leave to the hostal from there) at Fybeca Pharmacy at La Coruña (NOT Anymore Tribuba de lo Shyris as there will be a race there), from which we can make a caravan of cars (we will share soon a google sheet for anyone who has a car and can take people to the Hostal in Tababela) to drive people to the hostal in Tababela area This will an around 40 minute drive from la Carolina or we can arrange groups to go with an Uber car, which costs $16, so a group of 4 will cost $4 each. Or you can take the bus from Rio Coca, to Tababela area which takes an 1 hour to get there.
The plan will be to arrive around 17:45 to the Hostal to enjoy a bit of nature.
We will serve welcome drinks and some appetizers, we can make a campfire as well, we have guitars which we can play music with during the afternoon and night, also we can play games to get to know each other. Around 20:00, we will have a DJ that will play music for us for the rest of the night, either outside of the hostal or in the social area of the hostal. Also we will announce more fun activities to do at the hostal quite soon, so stay tuned!
In case it rains, we have a PLAN B, and stay inside the hostal and the hostal even has big tents to stay outside with campfire with the rain, so no problem!
For those that want to sleep at the hostal (you can book a room, here is a the hostal website so you can contact the owner: https://samayglamping.com/home-2/).
