QUITO IN THE RAIN

LOCATED ON THE EQUATOR, QUITO WAS CONSIDERED BY THE INKA INDIANS THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE BECAUSE IT WAS CLOSEST TO THE SUN. THE INKAS BUILT MANY PLAZAS AND TEMPLES IN THE AREA. THE SPANISH CAME SEEKING GOLD AND CONQUERED THE NATIVES. THEY PROCEEDED TO TEAR DOWN THE TEMPLES AND BUILT BEAUTIFUL CHURCHS AND BROUGHT CATHOLICISM TO EQUADOR. 

AT 9300FT. MARGIE OPTED FOR A DAY OF REST. A DOCTOR MADE A CALL TO OUR HOTEL AND PRESCRIBED SOME MEDS AND OXYGEN TREATMENT.

WITH OUR GUIDE I TOURED THE CITY AND VISITED THE EQUUATOR MONUMENT.
