Basilica del Voto Nacional, in the distance.





For 2 dollars you can walk through out the Basilica.
This includes climbing up into the clock towers on narrow ladders that are almost verticle.





This is the view from one tower to the other.





Every vista includes at least 3 or 4 church steeples.





I thought that Santa Barbara had a lot of red tile roofs.
Nothing compared to Quito, Ecuador!





As I said early, I think that all the homes deserve a photo.....





A native selling oranges.





Our first room of the trip, located across the street from the "South American Explorers Clubhouse". www.saexplorer.org
Joining this club is of high consideration for anybody planning on traveling in South America.

We are going to a lecture there on Thursday night.





A 200cc "Advant".





On our walk to dinner we passed a motorcycle repair shop.
I am going to go back and find out what the green motorcycle is (in the window).





We had a fine Italian meal before retiring for the night.
