Very exciting trip to Quito, the Capital City of Ecuador, the second highest city in the world (2,930m) after La Paz in Bolivia. Actually my second trip to the city, I was also there in 2004 and wow what a change the city has undergone, with massive investment and refurbishment to the old city. A world heritage site since 1978 and one of the best preserved historic colonial centres in the Americas. A stunning location, set in a narrow valley high in the volcano corridor of Ecuador, with a population of around 2.5 million. No pictures yet as they are under wraps until the article is published in Food and Travel Magazine in October.

Also while in Ecuador I managed to make a rather rainy trip to both types of rain forest in the Amazonia, Equatorial region. The lowland Amazon basin and the lesser know but equally interesting Cloud Forest of the Mindo area.
