On Saturday, Sept. 17, 2011, Anna and I returned to Quito from the Galapagos Islands. I accompanied her as she bought some last minute gifts to bring back home and then we had dinner at a Mexican restaurant right before she flew out that evening.
The next two days, I hung out with Rich Imamura, an old friend from Peace Corps Zambia. I probably should’ve gone out and seen more of the city, but I was content with just eating, playing foosball and drinking beer at night. I don’t excited about seeing another plaza, museum or church because I’ve already seen plenty throughout S. America.
At 9:50 am on Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2011, I hopped on a bus to the Ecuador-Colombia border to make my way back to Cali, Colombia. I arrived in Cali late at 2:45 am. My goal in Cali was to spend the next two weeks learning salsa until my planned flight home to the United States on Oct. 4, 2011.
