SD to Quito Ecuador

ECUADOR | Friday, 6 June 2014 | Views [402] | Comments [2]

Fairly uneventful. The day before the trip I had my credit card fraudulently used at the Alli Baba restaurant in El Cajon. Had to close the account, the new credit card was FedEx to Quito. See picture of Hupert delivering my credit card. Going through TSA security at LAX, taking off my belt my pants hit the floor. I thought I was pretty quick but turned around and saw the woman behind me laughing hysterically I guess I was wrong. Anyhow, made it to Quito okay, watched Ecuador play soccer on TV at an outdoor bar. Lots of excitement, Ecuador lost. Nice hotel room, trying to figure out where to head next

Great pictures. Wow, you're not in Kansas anymore. I was talking with Sloan today and you and your world trek came up in our converation, so I went to your World Nomad blog. You must be having the time of your life. The scenery and architecture look amazing. I envy you. Best of luck out there. Ex-Rangers gotta root for one another. Have a blast. Stay safe sir, Jake

About lipowcan8

A quick recap. I visited 19 countries in 212 days, traveled 46,000 miles by air,15,000 miles by land and spent about $25,000. My feet got beat up a few times and I twisted my ankle a couple of times.  No plane, train, car, bus, tuk tuk or taxi mishaps, not even a fender bender. I wasn't threatened or harassed and amazingly enough I didn't lose anything. It's hard to believe seven months have passed. As I said in my first entry.....a wonderful way to celebrate 60 years of living. It sure was!
