According to the historian Juan Paz y Miño, Quito comes from the Indigenous word quitu, which means place or space in the center of the world.

The Fiestas de Quito (celebrations of Quito) is a week-long party from the end of November to December 6 celebrating the foundation of the city.

Ron Mader: Quito is one my fave places in the world – not just for its evergreen must-see merits – but because of people. Corresponding with locals for close to 30 years, I have a special interest in this place where friends call home. For me, it’s easy to imagine a time after the pandemic of making a special trip. In the meantime, many thanks for sharing timely pictures on your marvelous urban photo safaris. Slow adventures at 2,850m (9,350 feet).
