April 30-May 1 A day in Quito before going to the Galapagos
This was our first day arriving in Ecuador where we spent an extra day in Quito before heading out to the Galapagos.
This hotel sends a driver to pick up their guests so I was happy for that because it was so late at night and I was on my own.
The trip began smoothly enough but in a few minutes we turned off the highway onto a long dark quiet country lane where we drove drove drove, it getting darker and darker, and then we turn onto a Dirt Road. Where Are We I asked in rather urgent Spanish. Dos menutos, solamente dos menutos mas. Ok ok.
It’s not that I was exactly frightened but I was becoming seriously curious how this was going to turn out.
