Latin America boasts innumerable beautiful colonial cities.  Cartagena is spectacular.  Panama City has a dilapidated charm.  Havana is a grand old dame.  The list goes on.

The historic core of Quito, Ecudaor’s high altitude capital, is as beautiful as any.

Plazas -grand and quaint.  Ornate churches.  Striking monuments.  Winding steep cobbled streets.  They are all there in the heart of Quito creating an old world atmosphere.

This arched passage view is a small tantalising slice of the elegance of Quito.

Hasta pronto (I hope.)
