We arrived late last night in Quito
Spent today wandering around the old town. Quito is 9000 feet high and nestled between mountains and volcano
Old town is colonial Spanish with many buildings dating back to 1500s and over 60 cathedrals
. A photo shoot with this ballerina in Sanfrancisco Square just outside our hotel
Today and tomorrow are Carnival here but it isn't what we thought. Most local leave the city so not big celebrations. Except families like this paying tribute to little baby Jesus.
Our hotel room. Hotel is an amazing old convent with open courtyard and beautiful antiques an art. This is part of our room.
