We made it! In Quito!

Wow, we're here...... and loving it!
Ecuadorian coffee is wonderful and we're waking up to a lovely day... low 70's, fairly clear and no rain.

We got in late last night. And, we got a warm welcome from Brian! He is one of the Canadian ex-pat buddies of Bob and Rox's...also staying at the hotel. What a surprise and delight to meet him! We hope to see and visit more with him tonight.
We learned that there is another Brian here in the Canadian circle, so had some laughs as we sorted it all out. THIS Brian is married to Holly and has an ex-pat kitty... the other Brian is married to Shelley with the cute doggie playmate to Coquita... on Bob and Rox's blog.

Our trip down was shorter than the last...'weather' in SF delayed the flight some, and so we ended up with only about an hr to get the next plane...all ok, no long delay waiting...since we flew out of SFO this time, the connection wait was going to be less than than the flight from PDX (Portland) would have been. Worked out just fine.

Yeah, I'm babbling... we're moving in slo-mo this morning! Actually, we're doing well with the altitude, so far. A little aspirin, a little coffee, MUCHO water...

We're at 9300 ft, moving slow... we'll be talking with the hotel/airline folks today for their very best suggestions and assistance in getting all these bags onto the plane to Cuenca tomorrow. Flying 'in country' is different from flying on an international carrier.....less bags, weight allowed, but I'm sure we're figure it out.

I know we have some pics to post, but need to find the camera....I know it's here somewhere.

More later, N (and R)
