Ecuador 2011: Day 1

April 16, 2011

Travelling day. The day starts (“officially”) @ 3:30 a.m.; that’s when the shuttle arrived to pick me up for the airport and my 6:00 a.m. flight. I would be much happier with this if I had gotten any sleep, but with friends visiting Friday I didn’t get home until about 10:30 and still needed to finish the last of the laundry and packing.

So, instead of sleep its flights and gate changes all day until I end up in Quito, Ecuador.

Seattle –> Chicago –> Miami –> Quito

I make it through the customs and immigration checks and meet up the first set of folks in the airport:

Annelies – a good friend and our adorable leader from Vamos Expeditions

Biao, Isaac, Max, Deena, and Ryan – longtime friends from California

Next, it’s off to the hotel where we meet up with everyone else, already in residence:

John Crow – a good friend and tireless entertainer (even when he’s only entertaining himself)

Kristina, Susan, Philip, Earl, Cathy, Sarah, Laura, and Regina.

Max, Annelies, Biao, Alan, Isaac, and Ryan get comfortable in the hotel lobby

Off to grab a bite and a much-needed welcome-to-Ecuador drink…
