Today we traveled by bus into the center of Quito (35 km). We needed about 1.5 hours to arrive in the historical center of Quito. First, we went to the Presidents Palace. There was the Changing of the Guards which
was a very big ceremony with soldiers, horses, music, and singing of the National Anthem. The picture shows some soldiers in front of the Presidents Palace. The President itself didn't show up. Sometimes he does. Then we walked through the town. The sightseeing
points were mostly churches. Today we felt the elevation (2850 m). We had some problems to breathe and walk. Therefore we didn't do some extra walks. Just when we wanted to start our way back to the campground we found an iPhone Repair Shop. My iPhone needed
some repair. The guy did the repair in 1.5 hours and it cost me $100.-. By the way, here in Ecuador, the currency is US dollars.
