Woke up early and went to the rooftop to workout. After a full breakfast in the hotel we took a Uber to the Basilica del Voto Nacional. We found that Quito along with Krakow Poland were the first two cities in the world to be named UNESCO World sites.
The cost to enter the Basilica was $2 and an additional $2 to walk the stairs to the top of the bell towers. On the way to the bell tower we stopped in the section of the Medallion where we took a picture. I ended up going one level from the very top of the towers and I saw the bells. Carmen stayed in a lower section after the gift shop.
Afterwards we walked the original city and bought some chocolates. We then entered the San Agustin Church. This was a very beautiful church that had pink and yellow interiors with flower prints that looked like wall paper,. It was very beautiful.
When we went back outdoors, Carmen talked to some ladies dressed in traditional clothing. We found out that there would be a free dance and comedy show. The show was packed, and donations were given at the end of the show. We gave a tip, as we had enjoyed the dancing and the comedy. The lady got the guests involved into the show, and I was one of the ones she used. It was funny and all in good sport.
After the show we walked around again and then returned to the hotel. We went out to look for a restaurant to eat and decided on the Waffle and Crepe restaurant that was near the hotel. I chose the beef stroganoff, Carmen had a salad that she said had too much vinegar.
