      Quito, Ecuador

      A travel blog entry by megankate on Nov 02, 2014

      We woke up to the noisy street feeling pretty lousy, partly because we hadn´t eaten much on the plane (raw salmon for dinner), the altitude and we were also unsure on whether we could drink the water so were a little dehydrated. We packed up again and made our way to our next accommoation, Hotel San Francisco. It was a big struggle given the hills, altitutde, empty stomach and dehydration, but we made it. We tried to get a taxi but he wouldn't take us saying it was too ...

      ... possible by building a small village with loads of over priced restaurants and gift shops around a huge monument. We booked our Amazon trip from Quito but because they were fully booked, we had to wait around spending almost a week in the city! This was probably too long but because we were having so much fun in the hostel and bumping into loads of people we have already met (including Stephan our German friend and the group we met in Banos) we were happy to wait ...

      ... Climbing stairs & walking briskly has me huffing & puffing when I usually wouldn't be. The city is busy but not as chaotic as some I've visited. The weather is fall-like - about 60, overcast, & rainy. I'm about to collapse from jet lag exhaustion so hasta ...
