Quito

Bloged in AA–HHHH_NEWs,Ecuador by Nicole Mittwoch Dezember 1, 2010
If you fly the first time to Quito by plane you will think “where does this bloody plane want to land”? Right in the city … on the next roundabout … or where ever in the houses? It’s like in Innsbruck! But here is the airport really in the city, surrounded by houses in any direction. Bit strange!
When we came back from Ibarra I spend one night with my frensh friends in a hostel in Quito. Nice city! We went out a little bit, had 2h-pancakes, a nice carrot-ginger drink and went shopping on the market! I like it!

Bustrip Quito-Ibarra and back

After 3 weeks in Iquique and so much sand it is hard to believe that there could be so much green and rain. Second question:” How can I fly in that rain????” Well! I was all right! Just the rhythem is different. You get up early and you fly in the morning till midday. Then the rain is coming! It rains nearly every day!
I came alone to Ibarra and I went back to Quito with my frensh friends. We mostly took a good number of people in one taxi. It was hardly less then 4!
It was much fun with them!

8th place – Acrolatino

Bloged in AA–HHHH_NEWs,ACRO COMPETITIONS,Ecuador by Nicole Montag November 29, 2010
First day competition
I was soooo nervous. 2 runs to go. The problem I had was just “the landing”. By mistake I landed on the island the first time and my glider stayed dry. The second run … fuck … in the water! Yuhhh … that’s a strange feeling! Well I survived! My stuff is still wet, but well tomorrow it will be wet again. It’s so much fun here. And the water is not cold! It’s such a nice atmosphere in Ecuador. I do manovures I never did before. Just because you should do it and it works well. Just the one I know don’t work so well. Maybe it’s the altitude of only 500m and the hight. Ibarra lies on 2200 and the take off on 2700m. That makes a change … somehow! Well … that’s competition. I like it! Tomorrow ground spiral … if you go into the water anyway! I have to do it! It’s fun!

In the morning it didn’t look like flying. It was pouring down rain. Well weather changes chick close to the ecuador in Ecuador … and we went to the competition after nice breakfast with tea aromatico (bad tummy … the second time :( ). The third run didn’t went so well but at least I stayed dry and landed on the island!

In the afternoon we went all to pisina caliente. Hot water swimmingpools. So nice. You could stay in there till you start becoming  froghands or whatever. Finally swimming in warm water without the glider. Whatelse could you wish? Great!

Last day best! Had a really good run with my helico, my wing overs and my dynamic fullstall. I was happy! Reached the isla nearly. So my glider stayed more or less dry! Just my harness got wet again! Well! The only sad thing of the day was the accident of  Francois. At least he is more or less fine now and I hope he can go back to France soon to recover. Had a nice time with my french friends even if I didn’t understand all of what they said!

At night good party en casa de Pedro! Muchas caipis!

En fin, 8. en Acrolatino! I can live with it! Nice time in Ecuador. I will go tomorrow to Quito … again with my french friends and on thusday I will take 4 plains to Tacna and back to the flypark in Iquique.

Arrived in Ecuador after, don’t tell me I am stupid … I know … but … more than 36 h travel by bus, plain, bus, taxi … without sleep, with a lot of waiting on airports (it’s better not to wait more than 8h on Tacna airport … there is nothing) … Well I arrived finally!

Tomorrow I will try to get some fotos … maybe my first swimm with my “Little One” in the lake … NO … not maybe … for sure!
