ROOM WITH A VIEW 9700 KM / DAY 091 / JUNE 15, 2011 - 12:47 / QUITO, ECUADOR
I`m in Quito staying with an old friend from Amsterdam who lives here. Woke up this morning with this view - not bad, eh?
I`ve been here for a few days now, but have seen more of my computer screen than the city. I really had to catch up on my edits. In the three months I`ve been on the road, I`ve made 13 stories. So there's enough to do: edit the stories, write captions and texts, and do voice-overs for my Dutch radio broadcasts.
What I have seen of Quito so far is beautiful and also remarkably affluent. The city does have its fair share of problems, such as violence and poverty, but the economy is doing very well. At such a high altitude the temperature is cool, although the city is right on the equator. Tomorrow I`m moving north for the last story here in Ecuador and then to Colombia!
