I am a Flight Attendant and I had been in Quito a few times that month. After doing quite a few of things over the month, I decided to play tourist and go on a Red Bus City tour. It's a hop on , hop off type bus and tour. It turned out to be a great and inexpensive way to see so much of the city. This was the view from the open air top going down a street....and I do mean down. It was extremely steep and narrow. How that bus driver got that double decker bus through those streets still amazes me. Quito is a great city, rather inexpensive and full of interesting squares, statutes, artisans, and culinary experiences.
