Quito Ecuador

Well my wife and I pulled into town this afternoon and as only luck could make it we were looking for the Sheraton as we had a package shipped in to us there. We did not know anything about Quito but thought we should be able to find the Sheraton Hotel. Little did we know it is right across the street from the football stadium and there is a big big game on tonight between Columbia and Ecuador. As the police had the whole area blocked off we got past the barracades and were trying to fish out way to the Sheraton when who motions us to stop. It is the Best know biker in Quito on the HU Albert Crutcher he was standing in front of his bar the British Pub. He gave us his card and invited us to his other bar the
Turtle's head British Pub. We finally found a room with the game on that is a chore but took a cab to his bar and had a wonderful time with him and his crew. If you ever get to town be sure to look him up. Larry and Sharon
