Pageantry, history and an engagement ring hunt

... option up my sleeve though that does silver jewellery, in the Old Town. I made a mental note to go there either on Wednesday or Thursday.

For dinner we went to an Argentinian/American steakhouse in the Mariscal Sucre area - delicious, just as I hoped. Dave got excited when he saw that T-bone steak was on the menu - apparently this is banned in the USA because of the way the meat is on the bone. ...

The first thing I did as soon as we returned to the apartment was shower!!! It was amazing, beyond words really. They have showers in Bilsa but A.) The water is freezing, and B.) We were hiking pretty much non-stop and sweating 24/7 so there was really little point to try and clean up. I didn't shower for almost 3 days…intense I know. Baby wipes and I are now on a different level in ...

... karaoke bars (which account for every second building in modern Quito. The other half of the buildings are fast food chicken joints). We wondered around for a while searching for an English language bookstore, since with the death of my kindle we now have to go back to reading paper books again. This is awesome since I prefer to read real books, but it also sucks because we have to constantly buy, sell, and trade books as we go. And the majority of the English books we ...

Pichincha volcano

Travelled the teleforiqo upto pichincha volcano (a mere $8.50 to ride 2000ft). Once there you're approx 4500ft above sea level - dios mio! It gets cold at that altitude and weird things happen to your head! Well worth it for the amazing sprawling view of quito and the volcano though. There were even some llamas and horses out and about. Only thing I would recommend for future is to NOT forget your jacket, as it severely restricts how far you can go.. As the only way is ...
