The middle of nowhere

The volunteer handover letter stated that Cuellaje was one of the most remote placements. It also mentioned the limited travel too and from town. I didn’t realize just how far it was until I found this:

 “From Otavalo by bus to the village of Cuellaje is a journey of about 4 hours along an unpaved road that winds its way through the mountains.”

Otavalo is 1.5 hours from Quito. I thought I lived in the middle of nowhere at home, but this gives new meaning to “nowhere.”
