Nuestros Día Libre en Quito

 

After spending a few days touring the region north of Quito we had a rare day without an agenda.  We all meet at the Academia and decided we would walk around a bit and explore Quito on our own.  Just go wherever the wind took us.

 Zumba  Zumba 2

As we wandered, we stumbled upon a group Zumba class in the park.  Naturally, we had to join in for a song or two…

We then decided we should take a taxi to the Teleferiqo, a cable care that took people most of the way up the Pichincha volcano.  Many people then biked the trails to the top the volcano.  The view of Quito was spectacular

After our morning ride up the mountain we returned and had lunch in a local restaurant.  I had empanadas – a corn and cheese empanada and a green plantain empanada.  Mmmmmm…

Bakery

Following our lunch we went to the local bakery we discovered a block from the Academia to procure desert.  (We spent the rest of the time we were in Quito haunting the bakery)

We made our sweet selections and then made our way to Parque de la Carolina for a desert picnic.  We spent the rest of the afternoon lounging in the park watching the residents of Quito enjoy Sunday afternoon. It was a nice way to end our day of adventure.
