13km North of Quito and I am standing on the Equator as the sun begins to disappear over the nearby mountains.
There is a $4.00 fee to enter the tourist area but well worth it. A large band entertains and soon a few of us are dancing around the Equator.
Night falls as I head back to Quito and I take in the lights of the city from my mountain highway.
Back in Quito, I enjoy a light dinner at Cafe Colon which is open 24 hours.
Located at Hilton Colon, I order Sancocho Quitena an Ecuadorian soup.
The soup is filled with meat, plantains, yucca, sweet white corn and is delicious. Served with warm bread and olives, it is a treat for only $6.00.
I am exhausted returning to Hostel Revolution but I am looking forward to tomorrow when I try to find my way to Tena.
