On the way to Quito we couldn't help ourselves but stop at a camp site situated smack on the equator. It was a cool little place and the guy gave us a tour of their little mirador with stick insects everywhere.
We then climbed up an unbelievable road which was cut into a massive cliff and suddenly we found ourselves in the middle of the capital. We could camp in Parque La Carolina for 2 bucks a night and, despite signs prohibiting it, Maya could happily ride the buses around the city.
The old town was lovely, and the new town interesting, but the star of the show was the amazing food truck place we found - it even served a decent IPA. We ended up there a couple of nights on the trot, and spoiled ourselves by seeing the new Star Wars in 3D.
It's a super cool city and we really enjoyed spending quite a few days here - it was a big change from our normal nomadic & rustic lifestyle.Read more
