(WHAT A WAY TO SPEND PESACH!!!) :D :D :D
WOO HOO FINALLY I AM IN QUITO, ECUADOR.......THEN IN 2 DAYS THE "GALAPAGOS ISLANDS"!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The trek for me to get here started in LAX, LA, at 3am granted I did not sleep from the night before cuz, I hung out with my LA TB GIRLS in Hermosa beach. I was a zombie in the airport. I blogged in the airport half asleep, as soon as I plopped myself in the plane I passed out. My mum and I were thankful our AA plane was not grounded. PHEW!!!!
GOOD GOD I DID FORGET SOMETHING….
Our layover was in MIA, Miami, mum and I ate before boarding. No food was given in domestic flights. It was 3pm eastern time. I passed out on the chairs until we boarded. Gosh I am so tired. I txted my TB peeps letting them know I am half way to Ecuador and my NON TB PEEPS as well. It’s so funny saying that. :P i got the "have a good trip...bring a turtle home or "YOU SUCK" HAHAHAH you know who you are :P It was a 5hrs flight from LA to Miami and 3 ½ hrs to Quito.
The flight from Miami to Quito was smoothed. I passed out for an hour, then it was dinner time or lunch time or whatever. They called it chicken with rice and some sort of weird sauce.
Too bad we were landing at 7pm. I could not see the city. All I saw were lights and mountains. The Andes Mountains to be exact. It was a smooth landing. Mum and I were anxious to get out of the plane. We were hungry and tired, but I am not tired enough to not blog :) YES THE QUEEN HAS OCD TOO :P
After going thru customs and such, we met up with the “celebrity cruise” agent. I am happy the boat only holds 90 passengers. Our trip is awesome. We take a bus to the airport and fly to Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, Galapagos Islands to board the ship there.
We made small talk with the other passengers and such. Then we all walked to our hotel shuttle. I took some pics outside not much. It was already dark. It was a short trip to our hotel. our hotel is beautiful, it is a 4 star hotel. as we were checking in to rooms. The hostess was serving us a hot towel and glass of some sort of a passion fruit drink.
We got our room and it is a beautiful room I will take pics of that later. However, there is only one bed. Since we were only staying for 2 nights. I can handle sleeping on the portable bed that housekeeping brought up.
It is now 10:30pm and I am almost done blogging. I still need to copy/paste it on TB and upload pics. I am bummed catalina and I won’t meet up. I think she is leaving to the USA on Saturday. She must be packing. We will meet again catalina :) I have a full schedule on Saturday. A city tour and eating lunch with the view of the volcano and standing on top of the equator.
OK TIME FOR BED. LOOKING FORWARD TO EXPLORE QUITO………..
OK OK OK OK I LIED.......
I was ready to logout when catalina emailed me...YAY!!!!! she's still in town. girl you need to change your dates!!!!!!! HAHAHAHA. i was so happy to hear from her. we exchanged info and hopefully we'll eat "cuy". she is so happy that i mentioned it. by the way it's guinea pig :) it's a typical ecuadorian food. i will call her when i get back from city tour.
