We have arrived in Quito – all the bags came with, though we had a small panic when only one bag came through……pause…….wait……hold your breath……..then the rest came in a full house.
About an hour drive in from the airport with a lot of uphill climbing brought us to our hotel Casa Q – elevation 2764m. Everyone is feeling fine. Went to the market to get energy food (and diet coke) for the acclimatization hikes – and with a craving for Reese’s peanut butter cups (guess who?) – i mean what’s not to like about that for energy? protein, sugar…….in any case the Supermaxi (yes that’s the name) didn’t have them….sigh……we will continue the quest tomorrow.
Went to Casa Nostra for pizza – soul food after a long flight.
Quote of the day: Dale ‘what time is it’ – you might ask why is this the quote of the day? Well we are testing smartwatches on the trip so each of us is wearing an Apple Watch, Garmin and a FitBit – Dale had 3, count ’em 3 watches on and said – what time is it????
