Near Sawrey

Hola from ecuador again! This is a photo from the equator a few Km´s north of Quito. We visited here with the teachers and students from the school. I received a certificate for balancing an egg on a nail at the equator - apparently its the easiest place to do it! (not sure which saddo found that out!) I think i´m standing in the southern hemisphere and Sarah in the northern.

We visited the Botanical Gardens in the city as well - Sarah took some really good photos of orchids etc.

This was taken from the top of the mountain near Quito (the city is in the photo!) Its 4100m above sea level. We went up on the cable car on our first day in Quito. Bad idea I think - we both felt the effects of altitude sickness!

Another day trip with the teachers took us to the market at Sangolquil. The animal section was the most interesting. Guinea Pigs, rabbits, turkeys, chickens, dogs and cats. Didn´t seem to matter what was in a cage with what!

I´ve put the link to our photos on the right so you can see them all! We´ll try to keep adding more as we go along. Adios Matthew & Sarah
