Landslides.

A 5am wake up all for naught.

Aja, me, and an American awoke bright and early on Friday to head to the bus station.  Aja and I had small overnight bags, intending to be in Mindo for a night or two and then return to our beloved Quito.

But it was not to be.  Trying to buy tickets and the people at the station were firm:  no buses to Mindo.  Nada.  At least until Tuesday.  D’oh.  So Aja and I grabbed our LP and tried to find another town to head out to.  Nothing was working.

Turns out there were mad storms in the north and roads were are blocked by major landslides.

What to do in Quito when there is nothing else doing?  Hop on a bus to Mitad del Mundo, a small park in honor of Ecuador’s namesake, the equator.  At least the sun was out.
