ECUADOR'S CAPITAL CITY, QUITO, IS LOCATED HIGH IN THE ANDES (2,850M ABOVE SEA LEVEL), SQUEEZED BETWEEN MOUNTAIN PEAKS WITH HILLS OF GREENERY. I LOVED EXPLORING MY MOTHER'S HOME COUNTRY; THE MONUMENTS AND 17TH-CENTURY ARCHITECTURAL FACADES, PICTURESQUE PLAZAS AND MAGNIFICENT CHURCHES. ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CITIES IN SOUTH AMERICA, DEFINITELY A GREAT PLACE TO VISIT!

I have been visiting Quito since I was a young girl. This country is my mother's home and dear to my heart. [My husband] Abd-Allah's first time in Quito, last year, meant I could explore like a tourist!
