Travel Blogs from Quito

Quito and learning Spanish

A travel blog entry by tim.quaye


... This was reinforced by the amount of time I spent looking at people in Colombia with a blank expression. I chose a school recommended by someone I met in Colombia. The combination of their good Spanish and that it happened to be the cheapest was more than enough to convince me. The school was called Guayasamin. After a famous artist. I later found out it was in the Lonely Planet too. For two weeks I studied 5 days a week from 830-1230 with a 30 minute break. ...

Quito, la cuidad moderna

A travel blog entry by rischontheroad


I took a trolleybus line (simply called "El Trole" in Spanish) to the other end of town. This turned out to be the area where the wealthy Ecuadorians spend their time. There were tons of restaurants including a Tony Roma's. All of the major U.S. fast food chains had franchises here -- KFC, Pizza Hut, Burger King, Papa John's, Dunkin Donuts, and more. You name it, and it was there. Out of curiosity I wandered into a huge modern-looking building labeled "Quicentro." ...

The Thoughts of Man

A travel blog entry by chimichenga

This Aleph is in us; but one of the means of stifling it, of killing it, is to seek it out, to hunt for it! There are innumerable ways of stifling and killing it. To deny or to believe it, or to resort to alcohol or to prayers: all these have the same disastrous effect.

We tried a number of traditional Ecuadorian foods, including Tamales (similar to those in Colombia), empanada con queso (empanada with cheese), Humitas (a savoury steamed corn cake with onion, garlic, and cheese, wrapped ...

Historical Quito and Guinea Pig X-Rays

A travel blog entry by katyflo


... could have gone for an x-ray myself. $30 if I bring my own guinea pig, $40 if they have to use one of theirs! Next we were shown an old colonial house and this had an interesting feature as they used to use bones from animals as decoration on the floor tiles. You don't see a lot of it in Ecuador now because it became unfashionable, but now that the city is protected, it means any original floors with the bones cannot be removed so I was glad I got to see it. The next colonial ...
