Here is the big, huge, gigantic cloud that has been hovering over Quito for days. We have been cold and I have been wearing my long underwear...is that too much information? ;) Many a day I have longed to have heat to just turn on for 15 minutes to remove the chill...or a fireplace...or something! Come back soon sun!

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. :)

This was taken at the Magic Bean restaurant...a favorite among English speakers as all the wait staff speaks both Spanish and English, and their menu has delicious choices. :) They serve what I call a "plate of yum"...thickly sliced cooked potatoes drenched in chunks of garlic and other yummy spices. I get a big fat stomach ache every time I eat them, and yet I eat them every time because they are SO good. They recently remodeled the section shown here and this was the first time I had seen the new look. It's the outdoor covered section and it's much brighter now as they knocked out the wall there in the front/right and added all the cool hanging lights. It was cold and rainy in case it strikes you as funny that folks are fairly "bundled" for South America. When the sun isn't shining we're chilly because of being in the Andes. Buen provecho folks!
