Today is another travel day and they are beginning to take their toll. We feel tired at the prospect of more transfers, flights and line-ups. Regardless, we start the journey back to the mainland (taxi, boat, bus, plane) and are picked up once again by our Quito contact. Again we hit Friday rush hour back to the city and make it to hotel La Rabida just in time before a gigantic thunderstorm hits. The kids and Steve hang out in one of the rooms while I do a full scale unpack-repack of all our bags to stash away our sweaty/wet gear, snorkels and sandals and pull out the rain jackets, fleece and hiking boots! From this point forward, we will work with what we've got and I'll deal with the excessive laundry situation back in Toronto!
