Quito to Latacunga

This morning we packed up and took a taxi to the bus station for buses heading south from Quito. The bus station was very modern and looked like an airport. The bus ride to Latacunga was about two hours. The bus was very comfortable and modern. On the drive we passed the snow covered Cotopaxi volcano.

On the bus They were showing a Japanese vs Chinese war movie dubbed in Spanish. I finished my first book of the trip – the new Louise Penny inspector Gamache book.

The bus tickets for the two of us cost $4.70!


Latacunga is much smaller town than Quito, about 100,000 people. We spent the afternoon wandering around the center of town. We are staying at the Hotel Endamo.
