Quito.

We walked through the old town of Quito, and frankly I didn’t find it exciting. One thing that really disturbed the architecture of the old buildings were hundreds of electrical and possibly also telephone cables. They obviously did not use underground cables in Quito. Well, here are Some pictures from the old city.

Of course it was a cathredal, you can see it in the background in the picture above. It was clearly inspired by European churches.

The church was surrounded by walls so it was it was a square around the church. In one of the walls, facing the church I found these two signs that I did not expect.

We also went to the entrance to the Presidential Palace whichof course is an impressive building. Two sermonial guards with spears (!) were placed at the gate, mostly to be taken picture of I guess. I followed the idea!
