September 1 - At the Middle of the World

My current coordinates are 45'N, 79'24''W. I am barreling toward the equator at 538 miles per hour, bound for Quito, Ecuador. Hooray! I made it on the plane this time - with eardrums intact. I am headed to Ecuador for 11 days. We arrive at 10PM and then board another plane in the morning to... begin drumrole... THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS! We are cruising for 5 days on the Grand Odyssey, a 16-passenger luxury yacht. On Friday, we then fly from Quito west to the Amazon Basin. My biodiversity level for the month of September is going to reach a record high. I am so excited! We arrived at the Casa Aliso Hotel after midnight, and while the restaurants nearby were closed, the staff made us ham and cheese sandwiches and brought a bottle of Argentinean wine to our room. We felt welcome in Ecuador right away!
