We went to lots of museums and churches on a couple of different days. It was great fun.
Enjoy the photos:
On to the museums. We went to two of them this first day and for the life of me I can't remember the name of either one of them. The first one is in what was once a private home. Rich people used to own lots of pre-Columbian art (and other eras that I don't know the names of) and then the government decided that if it wasn't in a museum, you couldn't have bunches of it anymore. OK, not exactly technical or probably even accurate but there were people who owned art that they needed to do something with and some of them donated it to museums and others turned their homes into museums. The first is one of those. It was absolutely amazing. I have so many more photos that I didn't include but I figured you were going to be bored to tears as it is, so I kept it to a minimum.
I have absolutely no memory of who all the people below are but the craftsmanship is fabulous.
Another lovely day in Quito. More to come.
