Mitad del Mundo
Mitad del Mundo is a tourist town about 45 minutes north of Quito by bus. In the town is the monument that marks where the equator is. However, since the use of modern technology they have found that the real equator is about 400 meters North of the monument. However, the monument was giant and really pretty and the town itself was very cute.
Calle de La Ronda is a historical street with many spanish style historical buildings in Centro Historico Quito. It is also very cool because it is a walking only street, which is super uncommon. It is nearly impossible to get places without nearly getting run over by cars every where you turn. It is well known for drinking Canelazo, a traditional warm alcoholic drink that is made with sugar and cinnamon. They are super sweet! We tried to do a Canelazo tour by drinking Canelazo from each place that served it, but we only made it to 2 restaurants until our stomachs hurt from all the sugar.
