    Good value cheap hostel smack bang in the middle of town. The decor could do with a bit of a clean up, it's a bit grubby around the edges to say the least and we had no hot water for a day or so, but for $30 for a double with private bath in a city centre, whadaya expect?!

    This morning we took a walking tour around old town Quito. It was very interesting. The city of Quito is a UNESCO World Heritage sight. Quito was founded in the 16th century on the ruins of an Inca city and stands at an altitude of 2,850 m. Our hotel, Patio Andaluz is in the old town. Just two blocks away from the hotel is Independence Square where we saw the Presidential Palace. There is a picture of me standing in front of the Presidential ...

    ... and got a taxi. Probably let the taxi driver fleece me out of a dollar, but I got home safe and he didn't argue my price. The getting home safe was worth the extra dollar.

    When I was getting ready for bed, heard quite the racket. Never saw the cause, but I can only presume it was some sort of mobile party or someone who is significantly deafened given the volume of the music. Good thing I wasn't asleep, it was loud enough to have woken me up.

    Tue Feb 10: my big adventure began with an early flight from Chicago and a long layover in Miami, which grew longer as the flight was delayed. Arrival in Quito was late but trip through customs fast and easy. Grabbed a taxi for the 45 min ride to SAE. The price is set at $25 for the trip to town, so no need to negotiate. Got to the house very late and a sign on the door advised me to keep ringing the bell until another guest answered. Much to my relief, ...

    ... another Quitonian, using the same language, explains the correct number and color of the bus we should take. Once on the bus we now pay close attention to the names of the stops, and typically exit at the right stop!

    Well, with this success under our belt, we decided to head to La Mitad Del Mondo, 'The Middle of the World', the equator, about 25 kms North of the city! To make a long story short, this involved 6 different buses and transfers, all ...

    ... Conservative Prime Minister. He was assassinated a year later – for building the church it is said. I’m sure some spin doctor in the Vatican could spin the churches 400 years of iron clad rule into a story of good for the poor down trodden. The current pope speaks out against the horrors of those centuries. And there were some good thing done – education so that the people could later revolt, but the jist of the tale ...
