Plaza Borja Yerovi
I’m awake quite early today. While Verena is still sleeping, I choose to quietly sneak out of the hotel and check out the nearby “Plaza Borja Yerovi”. This square is also called “Art Plaza” since all the buildings have murals on them. I’m quite surprised by the calm atmosphere. There is a small fountain in the center of the square that seems to be quite popular by doves and hummingbirds. They really don’t seem to get bothered by my presence and tend to their morning routine.
Quito sure is a colorful city – I manage to spot once again another mural by the artist “Steep” in the distance. After taking a few photos I decide to return to our room – Verena is already awake by now. After having a rich breakfast, we still have time to have a walk through the neighborhood.
