Quito







We arrived safely in Quito, 2 hours late and minus one suitcase. Caught up on our sleep and had a short walk about the local area. 
Going back out to expolre and will post later.

We went to the old town area this afternoon. Absolutely amazing. We were in churches that were built in the early 1600's.
Quito is a beautiful city.
Modern high rise and centuries old buildings can be seen in the same view.....

Is it not spring?...........

April 14th. Yesterday I was basking in the beauty of the flowering cherry trees and the beautiful magnolias. Today everything is covered with snow. I am so done with winter weather.
Hubby says we have to face one more Canadian winter, but I am not so sure that will be the case............
Two weeks from tomorrow we will be in Ecuador. I am already in love with the country even though I've never been there. Reading the expat blogs makes me feel like I am coming to a familiar place..........Thanks to all of you for sharing your experiences.
