It’s been a long journey but we are finally happy to welcome our second Guaranda delegation make it safely through customs and onto Ecuadorian soil!

We welcomed them shortly after midnight so after a short greeting and check everyone was feeling healthy, we got on the bus for the journey into Quito and our bed for the night. It’s always hard to get a sense of a place through night-time driving, but as we pass into the valley of Ecuador’s capital, we’re able to make out some of the colonial architecture in the streetlight.

We arrive in the historic old town about 1.30am and made sure everyone had what they need before they head off to bed to get some rest – we have a long journey ahead of us tomorrow! We’re looking forward to sharing all that Ecuador – and Guaranda – have to offer, including spectacular volcanic views on the bus ride.

But for now we’re shattered and need to get some rest. Stay tuned for the first blog post from Guaranda tomorrow!
