We made it to Quito, and stopped for a quick bite to eat and some help finding the address we were given for the Hostel. The mapping program would not find the address. Quito is a city with a population about the same as Houston. We drove from probably eight or ten miles into the heart of the city, finally stopping at a little Panaderia. Had a quick bite and trapped a fellow customer into helping us with the address. He looked at the address and said tres bloques directo y dos bloques izquerda. We were within five blocks of the hostel. Try doing that in Houston without any idea of where you are or where you are going.
We found the hostal Girasol, met Maja, got the motorcycles secured, got unpacked and ready for our trip to the Galapagos. I have photos, but I left my camera in the van coming back from the islands. They found my camera but another of the guests is bringing it back with her when she returns today. Hopefully then I can add some photos.
