Cotopaxi Express: Seth & Team Visit the Sights in Quito

Greetings from Ecuador.  Today was the first official day of our trip and marked the first time that the entire team came together.  We had breakfast and a team meeting a the hotel before heading out for a tour of Quito with a local for guide.  We began the tour by taking a trip to the Equator where we were able to stand in both the northern and southern hemispheres simultaneously.  After that we had an excellent lunch of Ecuadorian food cooked on a Paila or large metal fry pan.  Our dessert was a kind of ice-cream that is also made in the Paila.  In the afternoon we visited several sites in the colonial part of the city including the Basilica and the President’s Palace.  The weather today was very pleasant with clear skies in the morning and partly cloudy skies in the afternoon.  All in all it was a great start to the trip.  Tomorrow we plan to head up to the Pichincha volcano for our first acclimatization hike.
