Picasa Web Albums - Harold
Ed just uploaded to my Picasa Web Album photos taken the first week of our trip to Ecuador. The first night we spent in the capital city of Quito in the San Francisco, a colonial hotel in a room that not only had no view, it had no windows! The next day we flew to Cuenca at about 8000 ft elevation. It has a beautiful colonial downtown that has been spoiled with way too many modern buildings. We stayed first in the Hotel Crespo, a lovely hotel that looked out over the main river running though the city. Actually it is more like a very swift flowing creek, and is fed by melting glaciers in the nearby Andes. After three nights there we moved to a condo owned by a friend who just left that morning for two weeks in Germany.
