Ok, no panic. I called Fernando, the TB I met in Guayaquil, and he gave us some directions, so we could go into the city, yay! When we arrived to Quito, it was 5 and by the time we left the guys it was passed 6, hahaha. Before leaving them, we agreed we'd meet next day in Cotacachi.
Now the question was: should we have dinner here or wait until Cotacachi? mmm, it might take long until we arrive there, so better grab a bite here. No need to say that in our way going out of the city we got lost again, hahaha. Well, Shawn was showing me the surroundings and it wasn't a waste of time at all since I found something I really like: "Shawarmas!" hahaha. He hasn't tried them in Ecuador. So, there we go!
The owner might have thought I was crazy, not only because I was taking pics of his small restaurant, but also because it was cold and I was wearing a warm jacket but shorts, hahaha. He was really friendly and we started to talk about Quito, Lima and also how his business was doing. Mmm, he also mentioned that the area we were at that time wasn't that safe... The shawarmas were very tasty but small, so we got a 2nd one, but to share, hehe. Finally we left the place around 7:20pm and with his directions we found our way to the highway and after that we were in our way to Cotacachi. It wouldn't take much longer, we were taking the Panamericana highway!
