Friday, August 10, 2007

And this is how it all starts. Arriving last night, after not finding my baggage at Atlanta (despite the man on the plane saying I had to pick it up and take it through US Customs) - then getting off in Quito and finding it had made its way there, after all. Hooray for modern air travel, eh? Carbon footprint, my arse.
In any event, 10th August  is Quito Indepence Day. Which explains why everything was shut when I left for a wander round at 9am this morning ("9am on a Friday? Shouldn┤t it be busier?" etc...) And I have to get used to these Spanish keyboards. With their "┐"s and their "˝"s. Still, fun, fun, fun, eh? Oh, yes, that┤s the word for it.
Todo es bueno.
