These photos are from my trip to Ecuador in 2006. I especially like this picture, where the workers at a construction site are playing football, with the incredible scene of the city of Quito in the background. This city, so high in the mountains that, even though it is almost right on top of the equator, you can still see the snow covered mountaintops in the background.
Here is another photo of Quito from another angle with the Winged Virgin statue in the background.
The Basilica del Voto Nacional, took over one hundred years to build and is one of the last big projects of the catholic church. The building was started in 1892.
