OAT – Quito MPG 09 | 17 | 2011

On our day 1 on the second part of this trip The Ecuador & Galapagos portion, our OAT group had the possibility to discover the wonders of Quito and the surroundings of the City.

Early in the morning we went to SINAMUNE, a local school for disabled children were Maestro Palacios organizes and helps them developing more skills year by year.

After a performance we danced, clapped, and enjoy the music and the happiness of the SINAMUNE family… Thank you for all your support !!!

Then we went for a walk in downtown and the colonial part of Quito, we walked around Independence Square but definitly the highlight La Compañia de Jesus Church –  Gold Church in Quito.

After lunch a ride brought us to The Middle of the World, the real equator line some miles northern from the old city.   Some demonstrations right on the line!!!

A day full of activities in and around Quito… Next stop for tomorrow, The Galapagos Islands.
