Where I stayed
Hostal Quito Cultural
So we finally made it!!! Yes, since we couldnŽt leave on Wednesday (strike in Paris airport) we got rebooked for an evening flight on Thursday. So far so good. The flight to Madrid was of course delayed. Then in Madrid our 00:35 flight to Quito (with a stop in Guayaquil) got delayed by 2 hours... The good thing is that because the airline had screwed up our seating arrangement (we couldnŽt be seated together while I had specifically pre-booked 2 seats together), they upgraded us to Business class, which is a very nice thing to do on a 14-hour long flight... So there we were, in Business class, Simon sipping his glass of champagne (and me my glass of mineral water).
We finally arrived in Guayaquil, waiting for our last flight, 30 minutes to Quito. Nice flight, nice view on the volcanos. Needless to say that when we finally arrived in Quito we were recked and jet-lagged
Tonight is going to be an early night, trying to catch up on some sleep. WeŽre heading tomorow to the Cotopaxi National Park
Nous voila donc arrives (desolee pour les accents, vais pas me prendre la tete avec le clavier espagnol...)
Nous nŽavons pas pu partir comme prevu le mercredi 21 (greve a Orly oblige...), mais le jeudi soir, ce qui nŽest pas plus mal car ca mŽa permis de passer quelques moments de plus en France. Arrivés a Madrid, nous avons eu la mauvaise surprise dŽapprendre que nous nŽétions pas assis ensemble dans lŽavion (alors que jŽavais reserve a lŽavance des numeros de siege). QuŽa cela ne tienne, avec mon experience de United, jŽai insiste aupres de la compagnie et nous fumes surclasses en classe Affaires :) Ca mŽa rappele mes voyages United
