Saturday in Old Town Quito

With a plan to do much multi-day treks in South America, we decided to find fuel (white gas) for our camping stove – I had emptied the fuel we had left for the flight to Ecuador.  

Monday we leave for our first 2-3 day hike and we spent many hours going from one camping store to the next – then onto gas stations and finally hardware stores…the trail led us all over Quito.

Although all Quito outdoor stores do, in fact, sell the gas canisters, none sell the fuel to fill it with (nor do they sell insect repellent apparently.)

All was not lost, we did enjoy a beautiful day exploring the city and taking in what Quito Old Town has to offer…even if it does not offer camping fuel.
