Quito, Ecuador

My recent trip also included a wonderful visit to Quito, the capital of Ecuador.

Quito was founded in the 16th century on the ruins of an Inca city high in the Andean foothills. It is known for its Spanish colonial buildings dating back more than 500-years. While there, we visited some of the city’s oldest cathedrals, walked through the local markets, and enjoyed some of the region’s favorite foods. Quito is steeped in history and culture - it was great to be able to share the sights with my grandchildren, Jude and Truman. If you are ever in South America, I hope you'll take some time to visit this amazing place.

Here are some photos from our time in Quito, Ecuador.
