    what to see in Quito, Ecuador and in the rest of the country during a 10 day trip?

    We just returned from Quito and Galapagos. First of all, take a free walking tour of Quito's old city . They include fascinating info about culture, politics, and background on why Ecuador now uses American dollars. Other must-see attractions include great views on the Teleferico cable cars (TIP - go in the morning, before the usual afternoon cloud cover); Capilla del Hombre and Guayasamin Museum (free tours offered in English); and 20K from Quito, put yourself in both hemispheres at one at La Mitad del Mundo. If you are there on a Sunday, rent a bike and ride the streets closed for the weekly Cyclopaseo. Be prepared for rain as the mountains encircling Quito mean unpredictable weather.
