Galapagos Day 10: Quito to Dulles

Our departure from Quito is at 6 a.m. so we leave the hotel at 2:30 a.m. for the one hour bus ride to Quito’s new airport.

After the 5 hour flight, we arrive early in Houston, but need the extra time to get through immigration and customs.  Fortunately our layover is long enough to spend a little more time with the group before my flight departs for Dulles. My thanks to excellent friends and travel companions – Brad, Mickey, Donna, Dennis, Sue, Ron, Marguerite, Carol, Bernie, Jessica, Grace, Gena, Bob, Kim, Erik, and Jake – for a great trip!  And to our guides – Jose, Lorenzo, and Pablo for an outstanding educational adventure!!

Time for a look back on a memorable week in Quito and the Galápagos Islands.

Now it’s time to start sorting through the photos and begin post-production.  Then on to work on the video and book.  Hopefully, I finish things up before the next adventure – South Africa in 2015!
