Quito has several large public parks. In the photo above is Parque La Carolina, the largest in the city. We visited on a Sunday afternoon when it is full of families enjoying the "eternal spring" like climate. In the photo below is the major artery "10 de Agosto". We walked along this street nearly everyday on our way to school. In the center of the photo are stations for the new trolley which runs the length of the long city. We took the trolley often since it cost us only 17 cents a ride!
