Ecuador Volcanoes: Mike Walter & Team Arrive in Quito

The Ecuador Volcanoes climbing (and all of our luggage) has arrived in Ecuador! Everyone arrived in the country by early this morning and hit the ground running. We spent the bulk of the day on an interesting and educational tour of colonial Quito, visiting the Presidential Palace, the Basilica, and various other points of interest in southern Quito, also known as Old Town Quito. Our local city guide, Jorge, is extremely knowledgeable and happy to share the wealth of information he has about the history, culture, politics, and religion of Ecuador. As always, it’s a pleasure to work with Jorge.

After a typical Ecuadorian lunch of empanadas, locro de queso (potato soup with cheese & avocado), and fritada (fried pork with corn and plantains), we headed to the Equator. We visited an ethnographic museum and stood straddling the Equator, with a foot in each hemisphere (see photo).
We’re all still a little weary from a long travel day to get here, and I’m sure everyone will sleep well tonight. Tomorrow we had head out on our first acclimatization hike. We’ll be in touch tomorrow to let you know how it goes.

Cheers,

RMI Guide Mike Walter
