... up when he saw us taking his photo. Finally we drove to Panecillo Hill to see the statue of the virgin that looks over and protects Quito. There was an excellent view of the city and the mountains from here. We were finally dropped back to our hotel about 2pm feeling quite hungry so left the hotel and stopped at the first place we came to, Columba steakhouse.

It was nice using writing as a creative outlet again (Thanks Mat for the help), but I really should be going to bed before midnight. Especially when I'm not being productive towards my "job". At least my last morning practice teaching is at 0800 instead of 0740. Can get up at 0700 instead of 0600. And I shouldn't have to worry about hunting down a place to print off my lesson plan and ...
