Ecuador, Quito

CRUISIN’ AROUND QUITO

Tired of walking around the Old Town, plus my left leg began to hurt. I intended to rest on one of the park benches at Plaza Grande. Then I saw an ad of double-decker bus.

Right on time, I could take a tour double-decker bus. Last schedule.  I read on www.tripadvisor.com about this bus. Really tourist price, $ 15.00. Roving Old Town, downtown and back to the Old Town for approximately 3 hours. The driver was outstanding, able to reach the difficult terrain. One of the thrilling tricks was driving down the hill almost 60 degrees, narrow and full of other vehicles. Need special skills with terrain like this.

Road outside of Old Town. Most of the roads are up hill. Not good for my leg.
