Arrived in Quito at 11:30 a.m. today after one of the worst flights ever. Nothing happened, just seats were very uncomfortable. I think I could learn to hate flying!!!! Even though the official welcome program at the airport starts tomorrow, there were a few brothers there to welcome the early arrivers. We'll post a few photos. Turns out there were about 15 JW's on the plane.
After a two hour ride we arrived in our old stomping grounds, Ibarra. Population when we left in 2001 was 80,000 but now almost 190,000 so the city has really changed. We had not slept for nearly 40 hours so just came direct to Hosteria and took a 3 hour nap. Now waiting on dinner here at the Hosteria, a beautiful place.
Tomorrow we will venture into Ibarra and start visiting the areas we remember and try to make contact with some local brothers. Since our families are reading, this blog will be in English but happy to answer any questions in Spanish. We have not been away even a day and we're already missing everyone at home!!! Love to all.
Volcan Imbabura, 14,000 feet tall. We lived right at the base:
First meal in Ecuador, excelente!
