My first Bromeliad in Ecuador, I'm sure to see many more.
After an hour and a half hike to the top of this hill/mountain we came upon many school children laughing and playing. We think it may have been multiple field trips judging from the buses.
After a roller coaster of a taxi ride (I had my eyes closed for some of it) we visit the gardens at Hotel Quito were we may stay at a later date. See Ian's blog for his take on the taxi ride!
Hotel Quito dinning room on the 7th Floor for a fancy lunch.

The mall where the MegaMaxi supermarket is located. The Spanish translation for food court.

We joined the infamous South American Explorers Club today, see Ian's blog for a more in depth explanation on today's outings. Let's just say tonight's blogging didn't go very smoothly for me...
Women are seen everywhere carrying heavy loads on their heads, then selling their goods.
So you know I really am here :-)
The gun toting police Ian referred to.
The wonderful Jugo bars.
Bull art installations all over the city!
A church and another art Bull.
Great vegetarian restaurant where we had so much good food for $6.55!

School kids in uniform, all over the city at about 2pm.
