Si, estoy in Quito! And i don?t really know where to begin...ah yes, of course. Of all the tips that you all gave me, i wish that someone could have warned me about the quality of food on long haul flights. Disgusting does not come close, nor does vegetarian. I really have no idea what they served for lunch, the only recognisable thing was the pasta, covered in what resembled cat snot. And I am not joking. Enough of that, I think. But I will be taking my own food on the return flight.
Any snow yet? It's about 18C here, which makes a very nice change. All the other volunteers are very nice, i didn't talk to many on the plane due to feeling sick from the above mentioned food and turbulence. But I'm staying with 4 of them with a lovely family, sharing a room with a girl called Lauren, and we have a balcony with a hammock, which is coveted by the other volunteers - Sze, who has her own room, and Pilot Rob and Neil who share a room.
I'm in a internet cafe now, and have just realised that everyone else has disappeared, so I'm just off to find them.No chance of snow here, not even at 4100m when we visited some thermal baths on Sunday - a million times better than the spa in bath! i did start Spanish yesterday - it's good but very intense!
