Chapter 6-The last day in Quito
The morning ended with a discussion with the hotel management concerning the stolen money. It turns out they believed me, but said they have never had any complaint, but never less they returned half my money and fired the maid that cleaned my room on saturday. Since I couldn't prove that, I felt bad for the maid, if it was true that this is the first complaint (I doubt it was though). Anyway, as I checked out and headed to the airport, the hotel gave me an envelope saying they sorry and returned half of what I reported. Since I was on the way to the airport, I really didn't have time to argue, so I left somewhat happy and somewhat not.
And now, it is off to Copa Airlines and up to Panama City and back to home without incident, looking forward to a slightly empty house, but glad to be home never less, but already planning a return trip to a country that I found fascinating from the places I saw to the people I met and to places and people I look forward to seeing in the future.
