Day 231 – Quito by city tour bus

Quito is a large narrow city with much of the sights needing taxi hopping so Nobbies jump on a city tour bus instead (2nd one in 8 months) and spend the day playing tourist. Visiting the Basilica and climbed the clock towers for an impressive view of the city, the statue of La Virgen de Quito where she is the only Madonna with wings, and hang out in Plaza Grande surrounded by stately colonial buildings of the palace and the Cathedral. Massive police presence in the old town patrolling the streets to keep the old city safe. Unlike Lima’s old city.
