Climbers: Todd & Priscilla Clayton, Meril Moen, Piotr Stapor, Jonathan Deffenbaugh
Guide: Romel Sandoval
Romel called Saturday afternoon with the following report:
"Hi, this is Romel from Ecuador.
"Today, we started our trip with a nice breakfast together, followed by a program orientation, and then a fun tour of the city of Quito. It's beautiful weather today here in Quito, and at this moment as we are calling in to give you an update, we are all sitting in the very nice restaurant near El Panecillo. We are enjoying our lunch and as we sit here, we have a great view of the Virgin of Quito statue in the distance.
"Everyone is having a good time. And we are also happy about the weather. Not only is it nice today, it is supposed to be sunny at least for several days while we are doing our acclimatization hikes.
"We'll call in a couple of days – probably Monday to let you know how our acclimatization is going.
Talk to you soon!"
