Guayaquil Diversion

We safely arrived to Quito, Ecuador, after having an unexpected 12-hour diversion to Guayaquil, their largest city.

We were unable to land in Quito (in the mountains) because of heavy fog, so they diverted us to Guayaquil (on the coast). By 2 a.m. we were in a hotel, but had to get up by 7:30 a.m. to catch the next flight. We finally made it to Quito around noon — 12 hours late.

Oswaldo GuayasaminAfter checking in and enjoying a late lunch, the folks went back to the hotel for a nap. Cameron and I went to the La Capilla Del Hombre, a modern-art museum featuring the work of Oswaldo Guayasamin.

Cameron and I loved the museum, the building, the art, and surrounding grounds.

We then returned to the hotel, met the folks, and went out for dinner. By 10:30 p.m. we were all ready for bed. We start a five-hour city tour tomorrow at 7:30 a.m.
