Quito is the capital of Ecuador, and located in the North-Center of the country, in the province of Pichincha, of which Quito is also the capital city.
The city height is 2850 meters, and it is located some dozens of Kilometers from the place in which the world is crossed by the Equator line (thus the name of the country Ecuador), dividing Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
Quito surprised me for its development and beauty. As most of the Latin American cities that I have visited, it has its beautiful (and rich) parts and its ugly (and usually poor) parts. But in general, it is a beautiful city, a great place to visit, to walk and to travel around.
