Didn't sleep well last night and got up too late to call Dzia Dzia this morning. Well, I called but they had already left for the viewing. ...They've changed the answering machine message. Per Aunt Joyce's recorded request, I didn't leave a message.
Funeral's tomorrow. No way to physically make it as the cheapest airfare is still at least $2500.

We got to the bus station at 1pm and booked a bus for what we thought was the next one to Quito at 3:30pm. We found out after we'd bought the ticket that another company had one at 2pm so a little wait in the bus station was required! An hour into our journey there ...
