First day in Quito

Today started off pretty early with a breakfast at Hotel Quito. The most exciting part of the day was probably going up the mountainside in the cable cars. At an elevation of 13,000 feet, the view was unlike any I'd ever seen as we looked down through the valley and onto the entire city of Quito. The unpredictability of the weather in Ecuador is almost exactly like that of Dallas, except for a 50 degree fahrenheit temperature difference. It was warm and sunny in the morning, but soon a thunder storm came in and drenched us. Besides the rapid temperature changes, the weather here is perfect. I can't wait to go to the rain forest tomorrow and zipline through the canopy. I've met a lot of new people and am looking forward to the next two weeks in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.

Until next time
