!Benvenido a Quito!

66 Comments

On September 12th I left the USA and flew to Quito! Quito is the capital of Ecuador with approximately 1,8 million inhabitants. It’s in the middle of the Andes on an altitude of 2.850 meters, surrounded by volcanos lots of them still active. It’s located 22 kilometers south of the equator the “Mitad del mundo” and is taken as the reference point for measurement of the globe.

Some clarifications to the video: The volcanic cone in the old center of Quito is called “el Panecillo” and the altitude is 3.085 meters above see level. The “teleférico” brings you to the “Antenas” on an altitude of 4.000 meter and is supposed to be the highest cable car in South America. The volcano you can hike from here is the Pichincha the so called local mountain.

The volcano Cotopaxi is not the most active, but with an altitude of 5.897 meters the highest active volcano of the world.

And now, enjoy watching the video,
