The neighborhood around the Magic Bean (featured yesterday) is among my favorites in Quito because of the use of color - wild, vivid, fun color on most of the buildings. Shown here is a good example of a very festive block. :)
The capital and second-largest city in Ecuador (population 1,754,000 ), Quito sits high in the beautiful Andes with an elevation of 9,300 feet/2,835 meters. Quito is Ecuador's principle transportation hub.
