Ecuador: Quito, the new city

January 19th, 2007

We spent the first day in Quito using the local internet cafe for work purposes and not leaving the new city. Quito is said to be a city of two cities – the colonial old city in the south and the new city sprawling out to the north, not much more than a half century old.
Most of the tourist stuff is in La Mariscal in the new city and thats where we based until we were able to see the rest of the city.
Again we were somewhat confused as to why all the hotels in Ecuador charge by person and not by room – making them all twice the price than in Peru and just as bad.
