Middle of the World

About 20 minutes bus ride from the Quito downtown is the Equator line. Did you know that you can rest a raw egg on a nail on the Equator line. Shocker!! Are you trying to lose weight : visit the equator and weigh up to a kg less. Oh! and my favorite was the water draining a sink – did you know water drains in a clockwise whirlpool in the northern hemisphere and anticlockwise whirlpool in the southern hemisphere. But at the equator, because there is no effect of the magnetic field from the poles, the water drains straight off, without any whirlpool! If you visit the Mitad del a Mundo, do not forget to visit the ACTUAL equator line 300 m away. How to reach: Take the metro bus to “OFELIA” bus terminal. From Ofelia, take the bus to ” Mitad del Mundo” which will let you off right across the street from the landmark! Don’t forget to ask the bus conductor to communicate to you, when you reach the destination.

La Ronda

Ecuador is famous for its coffee and what can be better to taste Ecuadorian coffee in its bohemian neighborhood, within walking distance of Quito downtown. The cobbled streets of La Ronda hosts some interesting music festivals that brings together people from all over the city.
