Parque Metropolitano

Eric and I needed a little break from all the touring around and decided to spend an afternoon exploring a new part of Quito.  We headed to Parque Metropolitano, an expansive park overlooking the city.  It was pretty quiet there and we wandered around looking for wild llamas - unfortunately there was a big fire there several years ago and the llamas no longer run free.  We did find some but they were cordoned off and we couldn't approach them. We did come across some really interesting sculptures and lots of bike trails.  It is a really impressive and large park!  It's even more impressive that we made it out without getting too horribly lost.  We ended up walking all the way through the city to get home, about 7 miles and a great way to get to see all the parts we hadn't had a chance to yet.
