Quito Tour


It was a great day to start from Hostel Arupo with a tour on foot around Quito but not so much in the car as Quito is jam-packed with people and traffic was horrific..mostly due to the fact that today is the celebration Day of the Dead (All Souls' Day). The street scenes is the most interesting and Mee leng and I think that the colonial old Town, with beautiful cobbled inner courtyards, narrow streets and a lot of plazas where you will be able to see Quichua-speaking women in their traditional clothes carrying their children on their backs in tightly wrapped blankets, Mucho military looking police partroling around and of course tourists....just like us... We also managed to shoot some videos and a lot of images of this awesome cultural exploration. Our great host Oswaldo and Veronica also took us to see important monuments such as The Virgin Statue in Quito located at the top of a small hill El Panecillo: in the middle of the Colonial part of Quito, the Independence Place, Plaza Santo Domingo, The La Basilica church, The Monument on the Equator and much more...
So here are a few taste of Quito and its street life...I will be posting an Equadorian dance exhibition that we found while navigating through its meandering passages......
