Greetings from Guyaquil
WTF??? Doug isn't supposed to be in Guyaquil. Doug's supposed to be in the mountains up in Quito. Apparently an Iberia Airlines jet went off the runway at Quito on Friday. The airport was closed, but I managed to get a flight to Guyaquil, which is on the coast. Tomorrow morning I will have an early flight to Quito, and the adventure will resume. Yesterday it was (briefly) looking as though the trip might not happen at all. This has been the case on 3 of my 4 trips to Peru and Ecuador, so I wasn't too worried. Still, I'm glad to be here and looking forward to what the rest of the week will bring.
It was dark when we arrived. I've just been to a bar with some of the conference participants. No photos tonight.
