Our first U.S. visitor was our son, Simon, who came for three weeks in May. Here are some photos from his visit.
Pichincha & the Teleférico
Pichincha is a volcanic ridge to the west of Quito–our apartment is on its lower flanks. Simon’s last day we rode a gondola up about 4,000 feet for some great views of Quito’s long valley. It’s hard to breathe up at 13,000 feet, even if you’ve been here awhile!
And here’s Simon’s video from Pichincha, mostly to the north and east. These are the moountains we see from our apartment–love them!
