Garlic Mushrooms

I was just told by an airport official here in Quito to sit up. That lying down isn’t allowed anywhere in the Quito airport. Really? Which is such a bummer as I just had Sleepy-time tea. I sure have gotten away with it before! And as I sit up I gaze wonderingly at the two security guards  across from me, sitting straight up, sound asleep for at last an hour, back-to-back. they are holding themselves up with the weight of their bodies pressing against each other, like army men out in the field.
