Pic du Jour: Street vendor, Calle Galapagos, Quito

Street vendor, Calle Galapagos, Quito

Today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 789th straight, was taken one year ago today on Calle Galapagos in Quito, Ecuador, where you can buy just about anything on the flourishing street commerce scene — from used Tinkerbell and Pooh puzzles to well-worn but still usable running shoes and t-shirts. I wonder if any of these items are still available.

And entirely unrelated:

A link I recently added to my Travel Tools, Tips and Resources page that some of you may find of interest, particularly those of you in in a position to to hit the road spontaneously.

It’s Secret Flying, a site that regularly posts info about really astounding airfare deals, like Vienna to Delhi for €249 R/T or Orlando, Florida to Bogotá, Colombia for only $138 R/T. Two days ago they found a one-way flight from Los Angeles to Stockholm for $88. (No, that’s not a typo.) Obviously they sell out very quickly. They also include deals on hotels and other accommodations.

Good luck and enjoy.
