Ecuador - Quito by lux69aeterna Ecuador - Quito by lux69aeterna
Quito is the capital of Ecuador and counts about 3 million inhabitants at an average height of 2850m above sea level. It was the first historical center, together with Krakow, to be named Unesco world heritage in 1978. Sometimes it is dubbed the most beautiful capital of South America. The city is located in different valleys and is also endangered by a number of volcanoes. The closest and most dangerous is the Pichincha, located west of Quito. 

As there are numerous hills and mountains around the city, it is a magic experience to go up, enjoy the sunset and see the city light up. This photograph was made at a height of 4100m above sea level. Enjoy!

Exif: 28mm, 30 sec, F11, ISO 100

I lived in Valle de Los Chillos for about 10.5 months... Seeing Quito all lit up at night was one of my favorite things, and is one of the things I miss most fromliving there. Even though I got used to being surrounded by mountains 24/7 by the end of the first month, seeing Quito (and the surrounding area) lit up on the mountainside still took my breath away for the duration of my time there. Definitely one of the most beautiful cities in the world, I think, and I hope to go back someday.

Pues no exactamente pero Quito es muy conocido como UIO de forma cariñosa, la vista es espectacular, un amanecer también debe ser hermoso pero con mucho frío!
