Flew to Quito in Ecuador yesterday and will be here for 2 weeks. It's nice to get out of Lima as the weather there is crappo at the moment. It's the time of the year when a sea fog rolls in called the 'Garua', and covers the coast. It NEVER rains, but you are effectively walking through water. Living on the 16th floor of a apartment building makes it feel like living in the clouds. Sounds interesting, but it makes life pretty dull! And wet.
Love Quito. The city is set in a valley at the foot of an extinct volcano and surrounded by mountains up to 5000m. It's the second highest capital in SA after La Paz. Unfortunately, we're not in our regular hotel that has good wireless and I have to spend a couple of days working out of Cafe's.
While here I'm hoping to get to see something new. Haven't been to Cotopaxi yet, which is an active volcano in the south. May go for the weekend.
Here's a pic of Quito with Cotopaxi in the distant background.
