Quito: Bellavista, Middle of the World, and City Tour
Renee's Ecuadorian Adventure
On the way back to Quito, we stopped at the Middle of the World. It was one of those corny tourist traps that you really must see. When else am I going to have the opportunity to balance an egg on a nail at the equator, or to stand with one foot in each hemisphere?!?
I finally got to meet our staff in Quito - they're wonderful! We're in touch via phone and e-mail every day, so it was a real treat for me to put faces with names. They were all so warm and welcoming - it was touching. We ended up going out to dinner and taking a Quito city tour by night. It was great to see some of the sites and to spend some quality time with my co-workers. Quito is a beautiful city, and I only wished that I had a little more time to spend there.
