Here is an archive photo and not a great one at that, but it shows the city of Quito from inside a cable car of the Teleférico ride up Ruccu Pichincha mountain which I have mentioned before. The city is laid out like a banana in the valley of the Andes so very long from North to South and narrow from East to West. Click this photo to see the detail of the city a little more clearly (through the windows of our car!)

I tried to locate the National Basilica in this panoramic photo...but no luck!
Great shot of the city.

You are pretty brave there Daughter Wellspring. Climbing up to the top of the Bascilica, taking a picture, and now this cable car, probably hanging out the window to get the great shot of Quito. I probably wouldn't ride up there myself. I guess I like good 'ol terra firma.

I spent the first ten years of my life in Quito and was so enchanted to find this blog - I went through all of your archives in one go. I've been thirsty for such a visit - Thank you so much for giving me such a lovely long drink.

Quito has never looked so pretty for me as in your blog! Im Miguel, living in barcelona, about to go back to Ecuador after 2 years living in Spain.
Just wanted you to know i´ll be telling Marjorie, my girlfriend, to check this site instead of buying a guide for Quito. She´s from Canada and will be visiting me there in December. Ok, great blog and great pics again! Ill definitely return!
