  Plaza de Independencia
by filipdebont

Because of the music, we took another road, and like this we arrived at this big Plaza.

I was kind of overwhelmed by the beauty of the lighted colonial buildings.

And I must also tell you that there were almost 28 days in between my first visit to Quito and this one. So like this I was really convinced that I had missed this square at my first visit. I did not recognise these buildings.
Wow, so beautiful, it was almost impossible that I had been here, a month ago.
Till the moment that one of my fellow travellers, told me that the big building on the other side was the Cathedral, and then I started to remember the buildings as the looked like by daylight. Indeed this was the biggest square of old Quito The plaza de independencia.

How strange, that a city-view can change at night.
