... and we headed to a hub area to hang out and eat. I immediately noticed the ethnic diversity of people in Quito, which honestly was a welcome reprieve from Cuenca. It was nice to blend in a bit more. The Colombia/Brazil World Cup match was on when I got there, and the vibe was decidedly pro-Colombia (unfortunately they lost). I loved how despite the loss, people wearing their Columbia jerseys and flags were still out in the ...
