From Chile to Ecuador
Wine tour day, taking time to visit 2 Chilean wineries. Santa Rita and Concha y Toro including a nice stop for lunch.
Climbed San Christobel hill for great views of the city. Then headed down on the funicular railway and walked through trendy Bella Vista.
Relaxing day just mooching around and preparing for our next stop… Ecuador
Flight from Santiago to Ecuador. Caught up with our friend Denise who has come out to join us on our journey for the next 3 weeks.
We took the free walking tour of Quito to help get our bearings in the city before heading up a hill for a great view of Quito. Out for dinner and drinks in the evening at the trendy Zinc bar.
Visited the middle of the earth and stood with one leg in each hemisphere. Really interesting morning learning about all things equator.
At 6pm we met with our G Adventures group for our tour kick off meeting
Leave Quito by bus and head for the town of Tena. This town sits on the edge of the jungle and was acting as a stopover, our real jungle experience is due to begin in the morning.
