    Quick Stopover in Quito

    March 22, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    From the Galápagos Islands, we returned back to Quito for two nights, staying close to the historic centre. Our first day back in the second highest capital city in the world was spent revisiting some of the sights in the historic city, punctuated with bouts of eating. At lunch, we couldn't help but notice a number of sex workers and their pimp plying their trade up and down the street. The sex workers, wearing skimpy short skirts and sporting Kim Kardashian-style buttocks, strutted as they waited for their clients. In the evening, we meet our new Colombian friends, los Colombianos, Eylen and Carlos, for a drink and a bite to eat. After practising our Spanish with los Colombianos, we vowed to hunt them down in Medellin and then returned to our hotel to prepare for our next destination. There was nothing more to see here. Time to move along now.
