Update From Quito, Ecuador
Our Gate 1 Travel guided tour through Ecuador was wonderful, mostly because we had an excellent guide, but also because this is a beautiful country. The tour ended last Tuesday morning and we moved to an apartment we had rented in the Mariscal Sucre area of Quito. The plan was to sightsee, but Elaine had picked up a bug somewhere on the last day of the tour and our 3 days in that apartment were spent quietly while she recovered. So we rented another apartment for 3 more days and managed to get in a little sightseeing but now I have the bug!! Nevertheless, tomorrow we are taking a 4 hour bus ride to Baños, a very picturesque smaller town where we will rest some more and also explore. There are hot springs there because of the nearby volcanoes, and if we are feeling up to it, will probably try those. My intention was to give you a detailed report of our travels so far and include some of our pictures. Since I am not up to doing that, you will have to wait. I also need to learn how to put pictures on this blog from the photo storage area of Elaine's iPad since I have never done that. If anybody out there knows this, please educate me!
