I stayed over night in London. In the morning I got to ride on the tube on the way to Heathrow airport! I love flying and spent most of the long flight looking out of the window at the clouds (though I also slept some of the way too).
After 16 hours I arrived in Quito, the capital of Ecuador. Though I was tired after my long flight I couldn´t wait to start exploring.
I rode the Teleferico up a huge mountain to 4100m and climbed the steep and scary spire of the Basilica de Voto Nacional, a big beautiful Cathedral at the heart of the old part of Quito. It is unusual as instead of having ugly gargoyles carved around the outside of the church, it has all manner of creatures found in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, including, anteaters and cuy (big guinea pigs)!
I then travelled to the market town of Otavalo, where I went shopping.
Love Barnaby Bear xx
