Prison Break in Quito!

Reuters tells us that "sixteen prisoners have escaped from an Ecuadorean jail by digging a tunnel so elaborate that it had electric lights. The prisoners escaped late on Tuesday from Quito's main Garcia Moreno prison in the heart of its colonial section by digging an illuminated tunnel that was nearly 85-feet (25-metres) long and nearly 2-1/2 feet (70 cm) high."

Electric lights! Necessity, as they say, is the mother of invention.

That's it for this week. I'm signing off from Cuenca.
