What is your home city/country? How long is the trip to post from there, with what connections? How easy/difficult is it to travel to this city/country?

US. We are from the East coast so we fly through Atlanta or Miami and catch a connection from there. The total day is about 12 hours. The difficulty is that flights leave out of Quito either around 6am or midnight but the flights are short (4-5 hours) so you lose sleep and need the day you arrive to recover. It's such a pain. - Jul 2019
