Day 2 in Quito

This was actually 2 days ago, Friday the 19th. We went across the street from our hotel and got omelets, fruit salad, and juice all for $2.50 each. It was good too! Our driver took us to the teleferiqo, it’s like a ski lift that takes you up a huge mountain to the top of Quito. 20140720-124602-45962321.jpg

We ran into some other travelers from Austria and ended up going on the hike all the way to the inactive volcano a couple miles away with them, Rucu Pichincha.

After we came back down we found out that we very cheaply could’ve just ridden horses up. With the small time left to spare we rode them around for a little just for the fun of it.

We got one last surprise when we dropped the horses off: LLAMAS!!

It was a great, spontaneous day. And the ride back to Guayaquil that evening had a much smoother landing.
