It's the beginning of October in Quito and the weather is the same as in July or January. More or less. The sun shines, the dress code is flats, t-shirt, light jacket and jeans.
I had to go to the Hospital Vozandes in the morning, to do some lab tests. 
Taxi ride from my place to Hospital, about 20 min - $4.

On my receipt they provided website, user name and password so I could check out and print the results online.The results of my lab tests were available after 4 p.m. on the same day.
On a way back I stopped at the tienda (little neighborhood store) and bought some fruits: peaches, plums and litlle bananas. My total was $2.25
