It's 2:33 and I'm supposed to start driving at 3. The backpack and camera case are packed, too full to get anything more in. I'm having visions of not being able to get stuff back in if security takes things apart, but I have no choice but to hope it's all OK. Similarly, I hope I'm not missing anything I need, because there isn't room for it. After I post this, I will be shutting the machine down, so except for any visits to Internet cafes in Quito I am out of contact until the 19th. Please direct your good thoughts toward my stuff getting through airport security OK and my being able to find Guillermo, the English speaking taxi driver who is scheduled to meet me at the airport.
