... to sunset approaching and the dipping temperature but a few rough calculations suggested we could make it up and back. So we pressed on. After a while the path turned into more of a scramble, with the last 45 minutes taking us across rocky areas, up an extremely steep sandbank and then a final physical and set times quite scary climb along an unmarked route up rocky terrain (meaning we undoubtedly didn't take the most efficient route!!) we finally and thankfully ...

... out on a very important mission... choosing my engagement ring!

To do so we went straight to an extremely well-recommended jewellery shop called Ari's Gallery in the Old Town, right on the edge of Plaza San Francisco. Every piece of jewellery in it is hand made; the owner makes them with the help of five assistants. Most of the jewellery is silver but some are gold and some made from Spondylus shell. The ring I chose is made of silver and patterned with ...

I felt like a bloated pig, having had three of my chocolate bars, a bag of dorritos, one apple and 8 choc chip cookies. Yikes. But I still bought dinner... Anyway we got a taxi to our hostel for 5 usd. Taxi driver didn't have a review mirror but ...

Last day in Quito......for now

A travel blog entry by julieblyth on Apr 30, 2014

... the next few days. The fun of travel and trying to sort issues from thousands of miles away! Ecuador basically only likes cash transactions so if you travel here make sure you carry cash. Even the cable car yesterday was cash only. The Galapagos government fee of US$100 each is also cash only. We met our new tour group. There are 5 others on our tour. All from UK. We are the only kiwis. We leave ...
