Taken April 5, 2010 in the capital, Quito, Ecuador.
This beautiful city square is the closest to the government buildings on the right.

San Francisco de Quito, most often called Quito is the capital city of Ecuador in northwestern South America. It is located in north-central Ecuador in the Guayllabamba river basin, on the eastern slopes of Pichincha, an active stratovolcano in the Andes Mountains. With a population of approximately 1,504,991 in 2005, Quito is the second most populous city in Ecuador, after Guayaquil. In 2008 the city was designated as the headquarters of the Union of South American Nations.
The elevation of the city’s central square (Plaza de La Independencia or Plaza Grande) is 2,800 m (about 9,186 ft), making Quito the second-highest administrative capital city in the world (after La Paz, Bolivia), and the highest legal capital (ahead of Sucre, also in Bolivia, and Bogotá, Colombia).
The central square of Quito is located about 25 km (15 miles) south of the equator; the city itself extends to within about 1 km (0.6 miles) of zero latitude.
Quito, along with Krakow, were the first Cultural Heritage Sites declared by UNESCO in 1978.
