Great trip w/ American Alpine Institute. My thanks to Matt and Andrew (the guides) and the rest of the group. This is the first time I have been present for a military coup in a country. It made for a very interesting time in Quito. We summitted Cayambe and Cotopaxi but had to bail out on Chimborazo due to the political situation (strikes, roadblocks, general unrest).
