Travelling tat the airport Quito with 12 months old baby

by sol77

I am Ecuadorian but I live in Europe. I have a baby which will be 1 year old on February and it will be his first flight. I am a bit worried. The restrictions, the flight itself, which one is the best way to keep him calm.
I just need TIPS
Thanks

Hi - when you book your flight reserve bulkhead seats which allow for a bassinet to be attached. They'll have the bassinet on the plane for you. Keep your stroller until you board the aircraft. They'll take it from you at the door. Try to time feeding your baby with take off and landing to reduce ear pressure. Bring plenty of favorite toys to keep your baby occupied. Bring a blanket, extra clothes (something comfortable and warm to sleep in), and extra diapers. If you can, schedule an evening flight so baby will be sleepy.

The bassinets are usually restricted to babies and have a rather low weight limit, so I don't think a 1-year old will be able to take advantage of this. In my experience (both of my daughters had been on about 1/2 dozen flights before they were one) is that children are adaptable, so don't worry too much about them.

The biggest problem you are likely to encounter is your son not being able to equalize , i.e. do something about the air pressure changes as the plane ascends and descends. Children whose ears hurt will cry.

All those tricks that we adults use, won't work. Give him a bottle of something to drink during takeoff and climb and while the plane is descending (first and last 10 or 15 minutes of flight). Just don't start too early, or the bottle will be empty before it is of any use. That also means you need to ensure that he doesn't drink before you want him to and he is not hungry or thirsty and that way he won't drink during those phases of the flight.

Grumpy - the weight limit is 25 pounds for the bassinets. Are 1 year olds more than that?? :-O The timing for the bottle thing is always tough because of delays, etc. Sometimes the baby is just hungry! We've been really fortunate. Our daughter just had her 12th flight at 7 months - including a 12 hour flight - and haven't had any problems. One more thing to the OP - ask for the seat belt extender for your baby since you are not allowed to strap a baby in with you.

Donna - they would not let us use a bassinet for a 9-month old, so all I am saying is that "don't count on it".

Thanks for letting me know. Was hoping to use it on a non-stop from here to NY in the next month or so! I'll check when I book.

The airlines didn't seem to want to have a child that could stand up (and fall out) in a bassinett. From a liability standpoint, I can understand it though. Those bassinetts do not have high sides and the attachment clips do not look like they would be suitable for an active child.

Travel Tips for Quito

The contrast between the old and new part

by metteks

This picture shows the contrast between the old part of Quito and the new and modern in the distance.

The two parts of Quito is truly like two different worlds, especially when you see how people live in small huts under bridges and roads on the outskirts of the city. Then compare this to modern Quito, where people live in skyscrapers, with running hot water and nice furniture.

low petrol prices

by b1bob

Because Ecuador is an oil-producing nation, it sells its petrol at about half the price of the United States as of November, 2007. This is $1.48 per U.S. gallon, not per litre. Sergio can fill the tank of his Chevrolet Grand Vitara for round about $16.

Empanadas

by b1bob

In Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia they eat empanadas like Americans eat hot dogs. For those from Roxboro, an empanada consists of meat, gravy, a few vegetables, eggs, and, believe it or not, raisins (that's what makes them sweet). All that is baked into a flaky pastry. The only difference is, the savory variety of empanadas is called salteñas in Bolivia. Regardless of what you call it, I like it better than the Aussie pie or the American pot pie.

filling
4 onions chopped
1/2 cup oil
1 tbsp paprika
1 lb ground beef
salt, oregano, pepper
1 bouillon cube
3 eggs

Fry onion in hot oil until cooked, lower the heat and add paprika and ground beef, when cooked add the rest of the spices, and the bouillon dissolved in 1/2 cup of water.Let it simmer for 5 to 10 minutes on low heat. When cool use to stuff the empanadas.

dough
5 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 lb lard
1 cup milk

Sift flour, baking powder and salt together, add melted lard and hot milk, mix little, mixing well, but not kneading. Let stand for 20 minutes and then roll it.

Cut in circles approximately 6" diameter, and put in each of them one tbsp stuffing, one olive, 2 or 3 raisins, one slice of hard boiled egg, moisten the edges and fold shaping them as triangles or rectangles, brush with egg white or milk, puncture in 2 or 3 spots.Place on a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes at 375 F.

International Soccer/Football Games

by tejanasueca

If you happen to be in town when the Ecuadorean national selection plays, it is definitley worth going to a game. I went to a World Cup Qualifyin game agains Paraguay and it was awsome! The national team's games are played at the Olympic Stadium (located next to Quicentro on the corner of 6 de deciembre and Naciones Unidas).

The price ranges from $10-20, depending on when you buy the ticket. You can usually buy the ticket outside of the stadium starting a few days before the game (the closer to kick off, the cheaper, however, you may run the risk that they run out). Only buy from the designated people: fake tickets are common.

Get to the stadium early (2-3hr before kick off) if you want good seats as they are not numbered. Bring a boxed lunch and spend these hours learning the Ecudorian fans cheers! The most popular cheer goes like this:

VAMOS ECUADORIANOS, ESTA TARDE/NOCHE, TENEMOS QUE GANAR!" A boxed lunch, a rain poncho, sunscreen, a good mood!

Radio Católica

by mikey_e

Unlike many other Latin American countries, where the Evangelical movement is not only making huge headways, but also becoming a political and social force, in Ecuador the Catholic church is still a strong, popular and politically power institution. There are many, many examples of just how deeply the Catholic church is rooted in Ecuadorian society, one of which is the large presence of nuns and monks, a section of the church that is now almost inexistent in Spain, France and other traditionally Catholic states in Europe. The headquarters of the Catholic Radio station, right across from a huge Seminary, are another indication of the reach of this institution. This may be changing, however, as the government works to pass a new telecommunications law that would, in some ways, deprive media outside of government control of the freedom they once enjoyed.
