Molino San Juan

After visiting the equator, we drove further on the Pan American Highway to Molino San Juan, where we'd be having lunch.  Molino San Juan is an old grain mill in Cayambe.  

Mr.  Hunter introduces himself to some clay figures on a shelf at Molino San Juan. 

Mr. Hunter liked the colors on this door.

Before lunch, we were treated to a demonstration on how to make bizcochos, a biscuity, buttery sort of cookie that is quite popular in Cayambe.  Here's one traveler's blog post about bizcochos.

The bizcochos are served!

We saw many signs
advertising bizcochos in Cayambe.
This was my favorite one.
