Im in Quito Ecuador now. We are staying in the old town. Quito is in the mountiains. Im not certain how high, but Ive heard its at 9,000 feet above sea level. Its not all that cold though. Its a little odd getting used to the air, its very thin. The public transport here is all electric busses with overhead cables, but the whole place still stinks of exhaust. Im having a hard time fighting the temptation to visit the galapagos islands. Its $400 for the plane ticket, and about $550 for 8 days on a private yacht, cruising the islands. Adios!

Hey Dan,
Thanks a heap for informing us of your present location. I wondered if you would go to Venezuala, but there you are in Quite, Ecuador. How are you coping with the thin air? It is interesting to hear your observations about the places you visit, like inspite of the electric buses for transportation the air still stinks of exhaust. Is the city a big Industrial center with lots of manufacturing using lots of fuels for energy?

You are giving all of us a refresher course in Geography by simply reading and enjoying your postings. How are the accomadations there?
Where will you go next? At the risk of sounding reptitious, please take especially good care of yourself.
Love you,
G

Im not sure about that. The exhaust I smell is from old busses and cars. Today we went to the equator. They have a monument and a yellow line. Other than that, its a pretty boring place.
