¿What to do on a sunday in Quito?


Welcome back! This was my last weekend in Quito, after having spend almost 5 weeks in this city, it’s time to move on. I will have my last two days in school today and tomorrow and on wednesday I will take my backpack and leave Quito. This time next week I’m already at another school in Baños to continue studying and improving my spanish and in between I will explore some places up north.

Last friday was a great day for all Ecuadorians because the national football team won against Chile in the preliminary round for qualifying for the World Championship in 2014 in Brazil. So after having seen the game in a Bar here in La Mariscal with a bunch of people from Quito and from all over the world (and for sure, we all have been in favor for the Ecuadorian Team) the Plaza Foch and all Bars and Clubs around have been a big Party-Zone. So what else to do but having a party as well! So we did and I could make at least a little bit use of my Salsa Lessons months ago back in Germany!

Currently it’s freezing cold at nights and usually raining at in the afternoon and at night and I had nothing better to do, but to catch me a cold, but nevertheless, went out on saturday night as well. So don’t worry, even I’m not looking as fresh and vital in my video, I’m doing well! Just sad, that I couldn’t participate in the activities in the park, shown in the video.

So now I need to get ready for school, still have some homework to finish, and get ready for some new adventures.

Yours, Carsten

having spend 8 years in the Hotel Business and more than 20 years in the IT Business I needed a change. So this is the beginning of whatever may come!

  1. Wow, already another video! Good to see you’re all right – but don’t forget a jacket and a scarf next time, son! 😉 Have a nice trip north or south… Banos sounds like it is located at the beach but I looked it up on Google maps.. 😦 Well, you are going to school anyway! Have fun!!!!

  2. Schweineoehrchen heissen hier in Houston meist “Palmeras” (ist natuerlich auch aus dem Spanischen) oder manchmal “Elephant Ears”.
