Quito by Bus

IMG_8932

My host family suggested the Quito Tour Bus as the best way for me to get familiar with the city on my first day in Ecuador. I actually like taking tour buses in new cities, and I really dig sitting up top. It’s fun.

Mistake #1 — I forgot that I was at the equator.

Mistake #2 — I did not put on any sunscreen.

Mistake #3 — I did not wear a hat.

I didn’t snap any photos of the hideous facial sunburn I took home at the end of the day. It was impressive, though.

What follows is a selection of some of the halfway decent photos I snapped while zipping through Quito and trying not to hang too far outside the top of the bus.

Bonus photo!

On my way to Ecuador, I had a layover in Panama City, Panama. I’ve been to Panama City several times — Florida, that is. Alas, I didn’t get to leave the airport. Next time, Panama.
