    Gepackt, ausgecheckt und mit Kailyn mit der Seilbahn hoch in die Berge. 4000 m. Hier ist die Luft schon ganz schön dünn. Aber ein wunderschöner Blick auf Quito.



    ach ja, findet Elke ;)

    High altitude and market

    Today we said adiós to my parents who managed to change their flight to being able to go directly from Quito to Amsterdam! In the afternoon we went by cab to Teleferiquo, a cable cab up the Pichincha volcano to an amazing view over Quito. It is one of the highest aerial lift and even though Quito is the world's highest located capital the lift takes you even higher. We landed on 4000 m above sea level, it is twice the hight of the highest mountain in Sweden. Such amazing view, such nervousness to be up there knowing that the lack of oxygene eventually will cause headache, dizzyness and the swelling of the brain. We just stayed for some pictures before we took the lift down again, not taking any chances!

    After that experience we took a cab to Mercado Artesenal, an indian market in the middle of Quito. Here we bought a blanket, an Alpacka sweather for Bengt, chocolate, equadorian coffea, toys for the kids. All to bring with us back home! When we headed home it was already dark. The sun sets around 6 pm. Everyone is tired but happy!
