Sad to be leaving Ecuador as we've had a wonderful time!!!! Visiting old friends from the past, the fantastic international assembly, and then finally the beauty and warmth of the jungle. However, we're also excited to see many dear friends and of course family. At the hostal where we're staying there are many who will be in the country 2-3 months and are able to spend several weeks at each location. While tempting, it would be difficult to be away so long!!!
Up and breakfast, then packed up for the trip back to Quito. Took the last few hours to spend some final moments in the jungle and absorb the warmth which will soon be a thing of the past (:
Picked up at 5 p.m. and had a good ride back to Quito. Coming back over the pass at Papallacta (from juntle over andes) Quito looks like a small city down in the valley, hard to believe it's actually at 9,300 feet. Arrived back in Quito at 9 p.m. and ended up getting a room at the some hotel we stayed at during the assembly. We've made arrangements to meet the indigenous family (See Day ??) tomorrow at the airport, very excited to see them.
