Well I got out of Miami early and I'm glad to be back on the gringo trail. I've arrived in Quito last night and what a journey, probably my favorite plane ride yet! As we landed I felt like we brushing the tops of the mountains and that we going to land in someones back garden.

I found a really cool hostel called el centro del mundo right in the middle of the new town, the safe part of the city. When I arrived the hostel was having its 11 year anniversary and giving out free rum.

So this come back to the question, How to Cure attitude sickness, have a couple of rums. This got me right into the mood and I ended up going out dancing salsa and later to a hip hop club.

Today I've had luxury....I start my tour tomorrow and I've been booked into a great hotel. I had my first bath in 3 months and i'm really looking forward to having my own room for the first time in months. I'd got so used to nice rooms while working, I now really appreciate everything down to the clean towels and free shop. Of course I've been checking out the flow on the toilet now, as it is my first time south of the equator.

After checking in I ventured down to the old town to see some of the sites, I didn't see everything so I might go again once back from Galapagos.

So I'm all clean, really excited about Darwins islands and glad to be back in Latin America (I sort of miss the guns, elections and sense of danger!)
