On the way back we strolled through the street of La Ronda, which is also known as Calle Morales where we found a great, small Equadorian restaurant serving banana tortillas with chicken and other Equadorian combinations for just a dollar and a half. The neighbourhood was also beautiful with balconies decorated with flags and flowers over stone paved streets where children were playing.
After spending some time in the old city, we took a taxi up to the Teleréfico ticket office, which like all other taxi rides in Quito cost us only 3 dollars. The gondola took us all the way up to the Cruz Loma Viewpoint at 4100 meters, which was enough to get us all dizzy while strolling around the viewpoint. Although the landscape was much more impressing on todays cable car ride, yesterdays ride up the Teleferíco de Monserrate in Bogota gave us a much better view over the city as it was not as far up as the one in Quito. Once the sun set on the top, it got dark and cold pretty quick. When getting back to the city in the evening, the streets were all empty, meaning it was time for us to head back to our hostel and just call it a day as tomorrow there will be more adventures awaiting.
