Lindsay Visits Ecuador!

After two long months of living vicariously through Victor, I finally got to see Ecuador through my own eyes last week. Victor convinced me to write a blog about our incredible weekend together, so we each took different parts of the adventure. Make sure you read his post here!

I landed in Quito on a Thursday morning, groggy and disoriented after a red-eye flight and layover in Panama City. Thankfully, I was only responsible for a couple of small tasks: getting through customs without saying anything stupid, and finding Sr. Bolivar, the driver Victor had arranged. I managed to accomplish both of these tasks uneventfully, and was quickly on my way to downtown Quito.

The plan was to meet Victor at a restaurant below his apartment called The Green Choice, so I found a table and waited. After asking the store clerk for the wifi password and getting iPhone pictures of her granddaughter instead — the first of many signs that my Spanish is not what it used to be — Victor finally found me. Turns out I was in the smoothie store below The Green Choice. Oops. We took a few minutes to unpack and eat empanadas before he had to return to work, and I decided to follow him downtown to take advantage of the sunny afternoon in Quito. I took a pit stop at his office, mostly to confirm that Victor actually works while he is in Ecuador. For those readers who are wondering the same thing, I can say that he has at least found a convincing way to fake it 🙂

For the rest of the afternoon, I explored the gorgeous Parque La Carolina and wandered around Quito’s professional district. That evening, I would get my first real taste of what makes Quito special when we had dinner at a traditional Ecuadorian restaurant in the chic La Floresta district near Victor’s apartment. I ate seco de pollo as my main dish, a full plate of chicken, rice, and hot aji sauce. But the true winner was the appetizer: locro de papas. As only a true gringa could observe, the thick soup tastes like someone put mac n’ cheese and mashed potatoes into a blender and added avocado to the top. In other words, I could eat this three times a day. We ended our night with a canelazo (a warm, cinnamon-y, strong drink) at a nearby bar called El Pobre Diablo. Anthony Bourdain visited this bar when he filmed an episode of his travel show in Ecuador; since this episode was responsible for 99% of Victor’s knowledge of the country before he moved, it was only right to pay homage.
