What should you see in Quito? The views, views, views.

After a fairly quick flight from Atlanta (approximately 5 hours), and a breeze through the very modern airport (new as of 2 1/2 years ago), I’m very surprised with Quito — and the views are absolutely insane. So when someone asks “what should I see in Quito?” It’s literally Quito, because the views are magnificent and breathtaking, and in my opinion, it is what makes Quito special. That’s right. What should you see in Quito? The views. All of it. Take it all in.

I have to be honest: Before I arrived, I thought Quito was going to be something like Lima: congested, loud, sort of chaotic. But it’s amazing, and I wrote a story on 6 compelling reasons to visit Quito, Ecuador now.
