December 9, 2005 – A journey to Quito Surrounds, Ecuador in South America

Outside Quito, Into The Country

We visited a few spots today outside Quito. Felt very much like the countryside and farmlands, as these small towns seem to be more peaceful and laid-back. Fresher air too - Quito buses bust out lots of pollution. Saw a lot more indigenous people in traditional dress, too.
