We were functioning on Ecuadorian time this morning as our tour leader had talked to a place about opening at 7:00 for us but of course it was closer to 7:30, their regular opening time. Overall it wasn't a going to be a long drive day, thank goodness, as it was closer to 8:30 when we left. Our first stop of the day was he city at the centre of the world.

We pick up our new travellers from their long awaited flight, ...

I mostly just eavesdrop, when I can, because then I don't have to act interested when I'm not.
After it's been established where people are from, travelers immediately start trying to one up each other about where they've been and that makes me cranky, too, because, like I just said, what's important is that they are here with me, now, not where they've been that I haven't.
