    ... bus companies with a good saftey record and chose Transportes Ecuador as a result. They guaranteed to make the 8 hour trip without any stops in between (so no evil people could get on the bus once it leaves Quito) and they even sealed off the doors of the bus with tape so that the bus driver would be held accountable if he opened the doors for any unplanned visitors. Sounds a bit crazy but in this case it reassured us that safety is being taken seriously.

    A travel blog entry by jackie.laba on Mar 02, 2015

    Aside from the two afternoon sessions instead of one, today has been pretty similar to last week. Along with the rain. As it had last week, it started to rain heavily while we finished our last class.
