Subject: Re: Galapagos
Hi, I stayed at Embassy Hotel which was perfectly fine. Not particularly charming or outstanding. I am sure that Martin can give you some good recommendations. Depending on which day of the week you are leaving there is an incredible market at Otavalo, which is an hour or so away from Quito, on Sundays. Old Quito is probably the loveliest colonial city I have seen. It is so beautiful with so much to see. I am sorry that I didn't have a chance to explore it more in depth. Despite reports to the contrary, Quito is quite safe there are police men everywhere particularly in the old town where the tourists are. I didn't get to the highlands we went to Banos and Puyo. When you contact Martin say hi from me. Fanny in NYC
