13 - 16 October
11. The end of our trip!
that was the La Selva experience for us! I'm not sure whether I
have written so much about it because it was the more recent memory,
being the final part of our visit, or because it made such an impression
on me. I think it was probably the latter!
our return to Quito, which we reached in the early afternoon, we
arranged, through the La Rabida hotel, an English-speaking taxi
driver to take us on a two-hour tour around the sights of the city.
And that was the sole extent of our sightseeing! But it was worth
doing, because we had some fine views of the city from the statue
of The Virgin of Quito, a quick look around several of the churches,
and a stroll across a couple of the squares.
following day, we caught the flight back to Amsterdam, and then
back to Leeds-Bradford Airport in northen England, and thence home
