Last day

I can’t believe my flight leaves in less than 12 hours. I’ve had an amazing time, but I’m ready to go home. 

Today I lounged in the thermal pools and got a massage (which was AMAZING!). The place was very nice. 

I also took a walk they suggest that was totally amazing. It was only 2km long but every step was incredible.

Getting back to Quito was almost as hard as getting to Papallacta had been the day before. I think it’s definitely worth a visit, but it would be WAY better to arrange private transportation. The buses are a mess. 

I was able to avoid taking the bus all the way to the southern terminal because I just had them drop me at an over pass, where I took another bus into the centro histórico. I was pretty proud of myself for that. I found my hostal with no problems. 

Someone is coming to get me at 5:30am so I should try to sleep. After 15 hours of travel tomorrow (with a 5.5 hour layover in Mexico City!) I should be home. Thanks for putting up with all my pictures!


  1. Loved your pictures! Thank you for sharing them with us!
    Hope your arrival home is filled with joy and that everyone increased in their self-reliance and also their appreciation for what you do!
    Fingers crossed lay-over is better than usual for such events

  2. Wow, that went quickly! Loved the pictures. The downside of amazing overseas experiences is always the long travel time. But it’s always worth it!
