How a ‘feeling’ became a pioneering eco-lodge
When Maria Teresa Ponce first stood on the grounds that we now know as My SachaJi, there was nothing but a windswept, scrubby hillside looking onto the Imbabura volcano and San Pablo Lake.
Her father had a farmhouse in nearby Cusin, and Maria Teresa had grown up horseback-riding around the mysterious lakes, forests, and hillsides of the area and felt a natural affinity with it. An architect and real estate developer, her father encouraged her to choose some land in the 1990s that he would buy on her behalf.
