Where is everyone?

6 08 2007

Quito is a very strange place. Three nights I have now been here and I’m struggling to work out where the hell everyone goes during the day. I know yesterday was a Sunday, but really, why are none of the shops open duruing the day, or for that matter, any of the night? It is frustrating my attempt at pricing a motorbike or a pushy. Although today, I am preferring the motorbike idea. The car idea has fallen away – maybe if I had a travelling companion it’d be a goer, but solo I only need two wheels.

We’ll see.

On behalf of team Rev…. Motor bike??? Sounds like someones taking the “soft” option…. although I’d probably do the same. Just make sure it comes with a carrier rather than having your bags on your back again.
Take it easy Stevo….

Yeah, perhaps a bit soft. I’ve been watching how the locals drive, and to be honest, I don’t know that I’ll survive on a motorbike either! At least with a motor I’ll be able to keep up with the traffic, and it also means the route I can take is not a straight line south (and hence miss a lot of the good stuff).

Excuses aside – it’s the soft option (although not as soft as what might happen, and take buses everywhere)
