12 PICTURE ALBUM
Monday, April 12
Steve: This was another long travel day, starting with
our final American meal from our brief stay back in the USA (bagels with cream
cheese, cereal and eggs - it was great!). We then flew from Los Angeles (an
amazingly crowded airport) to Miami, and then connected to our flight to Quito,
We arrived safely in Quito right on schedule at 10:00PM, accompanied by all
of our luggage. We'd have to say that our travel from Tokyo to Ecuador was
an unqualified success.
We're now at an altitude of 9,000 feet, and have already started the process
of drinking as much as we can. Hopefully we'll all do well in the thinner
air - we'll see
Tomorrow we'll be making a 2-hour drive into Ecuador's highlands, for a four-day
relaxing stay at a hacienda. We feel that it's very well deserved!
