Flight to Quito

Posted by Susanna On October - 3 - 2010

I got up around 6:00 am to be ready to start my new adventure with the flight to Atlanta. Over there we did a stopover for a few hours and then checked in the plane to Quito. The plane arrived earlier than planed around 9:35 pm. The airport was packed. Lots and lots of people were waiting for someone to pick up as well as travel guides tried to find all to their travel group belonging members like a shepherd their sheep. It was so noisy but still interesting to watch. While still sitting in the plane my Spanish came easily back so while waiting for Karl I checked already how to come to the place we stay over night and got a map of Quito to not get lost. I had organized the night ago another couchsurf place with Fabian who is photographer in Ecuador and had already published amazing picture books about Ecuador. He had given me great instructions in English and Spanish as well how to come to his house and it worked quite well to find it even in the dark. Did you know Quito was that high in altitude? It’s like Bogota and the temperature at night was 11°C! The roads are very curvy and the city was way bigger than I expected.
Fabian is a very nice guy and had so many interesting stories about the political situation and traveling Ecuador, Galapagos and South America. Since he does pictures all over its interesting for me even more. The coup was actually just a show the president once a prof at university had made to get more attention internationally. More show than anything else but people had to die for it.
