Travel Blogs from Quito
I woke this morning in Quito. And then promptly threw up.
After a good 6 ˝ hours of sleep, complete with the vivid dreams the travel guides warn about (in my dream, I left my door unlocked and was pickpocketed, but the thief, who was a little girl, only had time to hide in closet. Hearing my deep wail of loss, she emerged and gave me back …
So I've left the Galapagos, and am now back in Quito. I asked the guy at Baltra airport if he would stamp my passport, he looked at me and shrugged. I guess they don't do it anymore. Shame, heard it was of a turtle! Might just staple my ingala card (entry card) into my passport haha! Back in the same hotel I stayed in on my first nit in Ecuador ( …

How has this hotel rated in the past?
The staff, especially Miguel, are very helpful and welcoming. No trouble with a midnight check in because of my late flight.
