Balanced an egg on a nail head ( took a bit of patience but we both managed in the end) tried to walk in a straight line with your eyes closed along the equator, which is ...
... 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.
