I Don't Recommend Jumping Off Bridges!

ECUADOR | Thu, 24 Jul 2008 | By katrinamckeever | Views [929]

Lovely white washed historic Quito is easily one of the loveliest colonial cities in Latin America, but a total ghost town at night as residents hurry home to bolt their doors against the violent reputation of the city. It is a real shame as it could ... Read more >
