First day in Quito

We arrived late last night in A1708498AF86BD54C335FBF0F1D6C0FF.jpegQuito

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

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.
