Quito – part 2

A few more photos from around Quito



The streets of the historic center of the city




The local Klan rally…. oh wait, maybe those are San Franciscan monks… I can never tell the difference

The Hare Krishna’s parading around during holy week

A chica (ohhhh multi-lingual joke!)

Some funky architecture

And what is this lovely and inviting pla

Here, as in most pla
