Quito airport and successfully reunited with the bikes and bags .
Little did we know however that this was a brand new airport and not the one described in the South American handbook . The difference being that the old airport was quite close to Quito and this one is a long drive away which caused some confusion when discussing taxi fares.
We thought the 40 dollar fare was extortionate but after watching the man stuff the bike boxes , bags and us into a fairly small taxi and then drive us for 1.5 hrs it seemed quite reasonable . Mustn't grumble though as when we checked the bikes in at Bristol they forgot to charge us the £100 per bike charge and we forgot to remind them .
Now at just under 3000 m and tomorrow has to be an acclimatizing rest day with bike assembly and a bit of sight seeing.
