Ecuador!! Part 3

Telefériqo!

Little kids on a school trip going up before us...



On our ascent to 4100 meters, or 13,500 feet. Up to this point,
highest elevation ever for Kerry.


Up at the top!



The station... there used to be a lot of shops but crowds have thinned out and now there's a lot of vacant commercial space.


A small chapel a bit further up.



Kerry going nuts with the view


Yeah, didn't go very far up the trail. At this altitude it was hard to walk
without getting very winded



A smaller panoramic...



Definitely a must if you're in Quito, what a great experience!


Then off to Maggi's to celebrate her birthday!


Got to hang out with the fams for a bit



Finished the day off with a trip to old town, with Cristina


Here we are at La Ronda street, I believe the narrowest street in Quito.


Peaking through a restaurant window to see a Trio play Pasillos


And canelazo being sold everywhere!


But the shock of the night was that we found BEBAS!


And enjoyed a deliciously greasy Empanada de Viento
(a giant cheese turnover)

Lisdas fotos... se ve que disfrutaron y les faltó tiempo :) Viste que en la foto de la capilla del teleférico, y en la #80 y la 88 que has puesto en los días anteriores, está el perfil de Sucre, igual al de la moneda que les dí??
