Up the side of the mountain to volcano Pichincha – 14,000 feet by cable car…incredible…
…and the reason we went…wonderful dessert and I’ve developed a love for sugar in my Ecuadorian coffee …thanks for getting us both while we are chewing.
Here’s the write up I copied from a tourism site.
Quito’s latest attraction, the Teleferiqo takes visitors almost to the top of the Volcano Pichincha. It is worth putting aside a few hours for the trip, and day or nightime is equally interesting. The cable cars will take you up to almost 14,000 feet and the views are stunning. Just remember that at this altitude the air is thin and it can be extremely cold and windy. Ideally you should not do it unless in good health and you have already acclimatised to Quito’s altitude. Wrap up well too. Once at the top there is a range of restaurants, and you can also hire ponies for treks around the summit.
WARNING…THE NEXT PICTURE MAY BE DISTURBING TO SOME…IT WAS TO ME BUT I HAD TO TAKE A PICTURE
Apparently a delicacy
Tomorrow….the middle of the World…separated by the equator….
