Borrowing someone else’s eyes

It probably happens to us all, right? We get so used to the place where we live that we tend to look at our surroundings with jaded eyes. Having visitors – especially those who have come for the first time – proves to be a good opportunity for me to look at this city where I live with fresh eyes. I think I needed a reminder of how privileged I am to be able to live in such an amazing town.

If I were to use one word to describe Quito, the capital city of Ecuador and *home* to me, it would be: diversity. And I found a short clip that shows a little bit of what that is. There is still so much more to experience in this city, but I can at least share a birds-eye view. Enjoy.

    Hola Angie! Qué belleza!!! La verdad me sorprendió muy bien el video. Creo que debe haber una movida importante en este momento promoviendo el turismo en Ecuador, ya que justamente en estos días (creo) viaja un tío mío y un amigo para allá. Le voy a pasar el enlace a este video, le va a encantar.

    Loved the video and want to watch it again. I was watching the pictures and missed most of the words the first time through. Beautiful! Thanks for posting it.

    Loved the video and will be hoping to make a stop in your beautiful country some day. Thanks for sharing and I also loved the music video you had on recently about change ( I think). Keep quilting.
