Today we fly back to Quito, the travel hub of the country, before make our way to the beach. The flight over the Andes Mountains was a little bumby for our taste, but I suppose that is pretty common for this route. In Quito, we went to Hotel Eugenia and relaxed for a while before going out for dinner and some dancing at a nearby nightclub. We elected to take taxis to and from the bar even though it is only a few blocks. It's safer that way, and with taxis only costing a few dollars, it's a good idea.
