... a work in progress. We headed to the bus terminal and caught a bus right away to Quito, passing Cotopaxi in all of its snow capped glory one more time. We figured we'd have plenty of time in Quito, and planned to get pizza, ice cream and go back to a playground we'd been last month to kill some time.
