A Tour of Quito

Today, we took a tour of the city and then were turned loose. On the tour we stopped at El Panecillo to see the Virgen de Quito. After the official tour ended we ate lunch then we split up to see different parts of the city.  A group of us went to the Basilica of the National Vow, La Iglesia de la Compañía de Jesús and Centro Historico. The Basilica was incredible. You could climb all the way to the top for an amazing view of the city. It was a great to finally get to spend sometime exploring the city.

Walking to dinner was interesting because the streets were mostly empty. People weren’t joking when they said nobody goes out on Sundays.
