Quito, capital of Ecuador, and very nearly ON the ecuator.
Quito is quite a pleasant city with lots of colonial architecture and large airy streets, lots of parks etc. It's quite apleasant place to spend a few days
One of the nice things about being in a capital city like this is just to wander around and see what people are doing, like this little shoeshine boy who is cleaning his girlfriends shoes !
Of course, when in Quito, you can't miss the opportunity to get the bus north of town and go and stand on the equator at El Mitad Del Mondo. in fact, since the discovery of GPS, and due to the movement of the continents, the Equator is now about 300m north of this line (but there's nothing there to take a photo of !)
