The Rocky Road to Quito…(Tandayapa to Quito, Ecuador): 26 Feb 2009

After lunch at the lodge we headed back to Quito but were stopped in our tracks by a huge landslide on the main highway back, and had to rapidly re-route in the process. Although this is the middle of the wet season, this year in Ecuador has been an extraordinarily wet one, with multiple landslides in many areas leading to some challenging periods. However, it is all part of the adventure of living in the shadow on the Andes, and one way or another, as we did on this day we get through it somehow, and had some fun along the way! (IT HAS NOW ALL BEEN CLEARED AND THE ROAD IS NOW OPEN)
