Ecuador’s Volcanoes: Sight Seeing in Quito

Our Ecuador’s Volcanoes team has arrived here in Quito after a fair bit of travel, but healthy and with all of our gear!  Always a good start to a trip.

Today we took to the streets, touring Quito’s revitalized Old Town and taking in the sights from La Panela, the hilltop site of the Virgin of Quito where we could clearly see the city snaking to the North and South, the ancient churches and plazas quite visible from our vantage point. Then it was off to lunch and a stop at the “Mitada del Mundo,” the “center of the earth.” Here the equator is marked by more than just a line and we were able to double check it’s accuracy with a few tests, putting to rest the long debate about which way the toilet flushes in which hemisphere (can you remember without testing?).

All in all a great first day and the afternoon thunderstorms even held off for us!
