269. Morning in Pasto

This week I am in Pasto — a small, vibrant city in the southern Colombian department of Narino, and the base of operations for our Borderlands Coffee Project.  There is a lot to like about Pasto: great people, a bustling downtown and a stunning setting — the city is slung against mountains that rise steeply to the east and north, and nestles up to the Galeras volcano in the west.  But Pasto’s most prominent feature may be its churches.  From the roof of our offices near the central plaza, I can see eight.  I know of three others, and suspect there are still more.  Earlier this week I got up and out early and scoped out six of them before starting the work day.  All but one of them had the doors flung open and was celebrating Mass.
