Quito, Ecuador

I spent my time in Quito, Ecuador in the International Youth Hostel. This is in the heart of the city for tourists and tourism. The locals call it Gringolandia because of the mass amounts of tourists. There are restaurants and food from every corner of the world here. There are also lots of fun littles bars and cafes. It is kind of expensive and I could not find an Ecuadorian restaurant anywhere in this neighborhood.
