We laughed when we woke up our first morning in our Quito hotel, which was in the former British embassy, and looked out the front window of our room to see a familiar picture of The Kentucky Colonel.
There were many mellow yellows around The Colonel and his bucket-hatted young admirer, but this taxi was a far-from-mellow yellow, undoubtedly for increased visibility.
The sky, at 9000 feet (2750 meters) above sea level, rivaled the buses for blueness. After I got used to the altitude, we enjoyed staying in Quito and seeing something of the country of Ecuador before, and after, a yacht cruise in the Galapagos Islands five years ago.
