Much to our chagrin, the locals that remained in Quito were suffering from a mass delusion that involved throwing water balloons at each other (and tourists) and spraying whippted cream. This went on for the best part of two ...
... the great churches and public spaces of Old Town, and nothing disappointed. The first stop was the Basilica, an imposing Neo-Gothic church set high on a hill. The interior was sparse but it had the coolest thing of any church I've visited: a catwalk above the huge arches leading to very steep ladders which you can climb to reach the belltower for spectacular views of the city. Why can't we have these options in the U.S.? Because within 10 minutes someone ...
