Day 1
Landed in Quito, Ecuador on the 1st of December 2010 without knowing to speak Spanish. Was made to wait at the immigration counter for close to an hour.
After the immigration clearance, there was no customs check.
Went to the hotel booked for by the company. Had some lunch and went hunting for an apartment. Selected one and moved in the same day.
The apartment did not have any phone or other facilities.
The long halt (17 hours) at Amsterdam seems to have helped. Not having a Jet Lag.

Day 2
Signed the contract for the apartment.
Went to office to report.
Went to the nearby supermarket and got a mobile and some things to survive on.
Friends helped a lot.

Day 3
Spent time at office. Went to supermarket to get some more items.
