Big Cities

Did I mention that I hate riding in to the big cities?
Tons of traffic
Crazy drivers
Not really sure where am I and where to go
More expensive
Blah, blah blah

I was planning to bypass Quito. I don't have good maps loaded in to my GPS. I took a wrong turn that took me in to Quito at rush hour. It sucked!
I was not planning to stay the night there but it was already dark.
It took some searching but I food a hotel in the heart of the city that had room in the entrance to the lobby for my motorcycle. And for dinner, I went to a restaurant called Vista Hermosa. And let me tell you, the view was amazing! The restaurant sat on top of the roof of a 5 story building overlooking the entire city. I could see all the church towers, monuments built on top of all the mountains surrounding the city and all the lights of the city below and above me. The food was good too......lamb and rice for $12. The hotel is nice too.......$25 a night!
Hey, not all big cities are bad, I just hate driving in to them
