Slept in since this is the one day off this week. Was going to Otavalo originally to check out the market, but that idea died earlier in the week when the talk of getting a bus fell through. Plus it's nice to have a day to relax. Was going to go check out one of the capoeira schools I found, but I didn't get up in time.

I'm actually pleasantly surprised at the landscape in Ecuador. I'm not sure what I had imagined, but it certainly wasn't as beautiful as the reality. After a few hours meandering around the market and a few purchases later, we made the 2.5hr journey back to Quito. Big day tomorrow. An an early start and then next stop, the ...
... an egg on the head of a nail is doable right on the equator. Walking along the equator heel to toe, arms out, eyes closed may be doable but I and many others couldn’t do it where it was easy to do when not standing on the equator.
