Back for our 3rd visit in as many weeks as it is just so conveniently located, the staff are great and it's good value. Just an extra bathroom and toilet would put the icing on!

This was a serviceable hostel that was pretty comfortable (some beds are softer than others) and mostly friendly (the day workers were nice, but the owners´family seemed a bit short). This place is big amongst Europeans it seems. There is a small community kitchen, but you have to buy your own drinking water. Not sure it deserved the rave reviews the guidebooks gave it though...

I've been blown away by the number of you who've taken the time to send me Facebook messages, whatsapps and emails to wish me well on my travels. Thank you so much to everyone! After the bumpiest of bumpy landings given the altitude, I finally arrived in the world's second highest city Quito (which stands at an elevation of 2,800m above sea level …

... near the airport because tomorrow we are flying to a Guyaquil, on the coast, to meet the National Geographic Galapagos group. I chose the hotel near the airport for its facilities--it advertises a game room and an office center. I was picturing a kind of Hilton Garden Inn where we could catch up on homework in a generic place without having to worry about distractions like friendly proprietors and personal service. I warned the boys "It's ...

... we waited for a real taxi. Buses here are pretty strange, the set up is as if they are a subway with the doors opening at the side but its infact just a bus pulled up at a platform. We got off just a couple stops before the old town because we noticed the central market at the side of the road. In there they were shouting at you to try get you to buy their chicken or whatever the hell the stuff was they had cooked. I chanced the fried chicken with lentils, if i poop my way home ...

... were amazing. From the top you could not only see sprawling Quito, but 10 volcanos surrounding the city. Amazing. Did wonders for our new volcano fetish. After admiring the views we got a bus to 'medio del Mundo' or center of the earth. Basically it's a theme park set up for the equator, where you are at 00"00"00 and can put one foot in the northern hemisphere and one foot in the southern. We had a lot of laughs, putting on thick northern ...

... and easiest to understand and therefore learn. I choose a school named Yanapuma which also provides accommodation. I stay with a very catholic family who are very welcoming and friendly. Classes start at 8am and finish 2pm then we go on a cultural excursion (also provided by the school). During the week, we visit La Basilica, a huge cathedral where you can climb all the way to the top and find a beautiful view of Quito and The Panecillo (a hill overlooking the ...
