Get out of the country free?

Not in Ecuador!  I know all of you were wondering if I drowned in that bathtub, I didn’t.  Spent most of yesterday flying home from Quito.  Our sojourn in Ecuador was amazing.  I loved the country, the people, the color everywhere. I can’t wait to go back.  I’m going to have to save up though.  Turns out is costs you $40.82 to exit the country.  Yup, it’s like a tax.  A tax you have to pay in cash before you can even check a bag or contemplate leaving Ecuador.  And…you have to pay it every single time you take an international flight out of Ecuador.  I think next time I visit my side trips to Peru, Chile, Argentina, etc. will have to be on the front end of my trip!
