We arrive at 10:00 PM and Go to our hotel
Our Trip to Quito, Ecuador and the Galapagos

Home, sweet AlisoHome, sweet Aliso (Ranny Pierce)
It's hard to believe that we are in the capital of Ecuador. Frankly, before looking into a trip to the Galapagos I never really thought about spending much time in Quito.

I'm so glad that we made the decision to come a few days early and spend time exploring the capital city and the beautiful towns and countryside outside of Quito.

In fact, in hindsight, we could have added a few more; there's just so much to see.

I also would suggest (depending on your age - we're in our mid-sixties) to do more in Quito before your trip to the Galapagos. You'll have more energy, as the Galapagos can be a bit exhausting.

The airport was bustling, even at 10:00 at night. Our guide was "right there" waiting for us and ready to take us to our hotel - Casa Aliso. A little gem - a boutique hotel - a charming place to stay.

More about the hotel in tomorrow's journal. Tired now and it's time to go to bed.
