Left Wilkes at 8 AM and arrived at Newark around 1030. Security was a breeze and the flight to Miami was without incident. We had three hours to kill in Miami so he had lunch. For me it was a mojito and ceviche.
Flight to Quito had about a third of the plane's capacity to lots of room. The folks from Posada Mira Linda have been great and picked us up at the airport. I'm in the room and the students are out eating snacks and playing cards. Off to bed.
