The travel to Quito

My travel  to Quito was by themes of work and therefore I travel in the company of coworkers, was nevertheless an opportunity to recognize a city that already visit at an earlier opportunity.

He was pleased the visit a city that has advanced greatly and it is a city that has grown over by its topography and in moments like very much to my hometown La Paz.
 
Unfortunately the time we juice tricks, as for much of my free time I had was rainy, so on several occasions we had to take refuge for dinner in the mall called "El Jardin", which had a good yard meals and where we find a good "Pan de Yuca" in Bolivia as we know it "cuñape", with the difference that in Ecuador the combined eat with yogurt and even sometimes with chocolate filling, while in my country we combined with a coffee.

Of course the ride is to the "Historic Center of Quito" and that is what I recommend a walk at night to assess the combination of its monuments and historical buildings with lighting that combines perfectly with these buildings and streets of this historic center.

Near the airport
To this effect we take a "city tour" that led us by the major churches like the Church of the Company's, the Cathedral and the Church of San Francisco, its main square and even led us to "The Panecillo" one hill that serves as viewpoint and from where he appreciates the historic center, our tour culminating in the so-called local “Leña Quiteña” located on the street "La Ronda" (street typical of the Historic Center) where we drink one "canelazo" hot drink like a punch,  and enjoy music by South American countries

 

 

In Spanish:

 

 

Viaje a Quito por temas de trabajo y por consiguiente en compañía de compañeros de trabajo, no obstante era una oportunidad para reconocer una ciudad  que ya visite en una anterior oportunidad.

Fue grato el visitar una ciudad que ha adelantado mucho y que es una ciudad que ha crecido a lo largo por su topografía y que en momentos se parece mucho a mi ciudad.

 

Lastimosamente el tiempo nos jugo una mala pasada, ya que durante gran parte del tiempo libre que tenia estaba lluvioso, por lo que en varias oportunidades nos tuvimos que refugiar para cenar en el centro comercial llamado “El Jardín”, que tenia un buen patio de comidas y donde encontramos un buen “pan de yuca” que en Bolivia lo conocemos como “cuñape”, con la diferencia que en  el Ecuador lo comen combinado de yogurt e incluso alguna vez con chocolate relleno, mientras que en mi país se lo come acompañado de café.

 

Lógicamente el paseo obligado es el “Centro histórico de Quito” y es un paseo que lo recomiendo en horario nocturno para apreciar la combinación de sus monumentos y construcciones históricas con una iluminación que combina perfectamente con estas construcciones y calles de este centro histórico.

Way to the hotel
Para este efecto tomamos un “city tour” que nos llevo por las principales iglesias como ser la Iglesia de la Compañía, la Catedral  y la Iglesia de San Francisco,  su plaza principal e incluso nos llevo hasta “El Panecillo” la colina que sirve como mirador y desde donde se aprecia el centro histórico,  culminando nuestro paseo en el local denominado “Leña Quiteña” ubicado en la calle “La Ronda” (calle típica del  Centro  Histórico) donde saboreamos un “canelazo”, bebida caliente como un ponche y disfrutamos de una peña con música de los países sudamericanos.
