By the time we arrived it was time to put your name down for the various activities for tomorrow. I knew i definately wanted to do the walk up the ...

As more and more people passing us on their way up looks absolutely exhausted I started playing with the idea of getting a mule for the way up as I hadn't even been in Quito for 48 hours and was therefore nowhere near being acclimated to the altitude. After a misunderstanding with the wrong horseman we ended up getting assigned two mules ...
In the morning, almost first thing after breakfast, we did something I've wanted to do for many years... we went on the Teleférico, the cable cars, up Pichincha Volcano! We went up to 4100 metres altitude. The view you get over Quito from up there is jaw-dropping. I was incredibly happy up there; I'd been wanting to come to this particular place for years!
Once we got back to the hostel, though, and ...
