Easy does it....

We were looking very forward to Quito and seeing our friends Meredith and Cooper from who came all the way from Philadelphia so that we could spend the next 2 weeks together.

We arrived after a lovely evening spent at the Lima Country Club Hotel, a suprise from Jonathan as it was our 2nd anniversary (time is flying!) We are staying at the Cafe Cultura, which, funnily enough is owned by a Hungarian guy. It was great to see them and we had a great evening of catching up at about 100 miles an hour!

Unfortunately, it wouldn't last as both Meredith and I were unable to go anywhere the next day due to slight illness..... a bit of a wash, but we managed to go to the old town the following day and see many of the main sights including the Monastary and the The Basilica which has a spectacular view over Quito.

We decided at the last minute to head up to the Northern Highlands for a few days before we head off to the Galapagos at the end of the week. So, after a final dinner (this time for Cooper and Meredith's anniversary) at Boco de Lobo, and lots of storytelling about fellow diners, we said goodbye to Quito for a short time - Jonathan and I will be back here for a week after the Galapagos for another week of Spanish.
