The Ecuador Chronicles - 2010-05
On Sunday in Colonial Quito;
Automobiles are Not Allowed;
Pedestrians, Bicycles Trolleys & Horses
Colonial Quito is a quiet place on Sunday's, and not just because it is a day of rest - automobiles and buses are not allowed throughout most of the Colonial area on Sunday's. Only the Electric Trolleys run. It is a great day for Quiteños to enjoy their Colonial City. There are many people walking through the streets and plazas - and there are bicycles everywhere.

Trolleys, Bicycles, and Horses;

On Sunday in Colonial Quito you can move around the City other than walking. The Electirc Trollys still run, you can ride your bicycle - or you can travel in a horse-drawn carriage. But if you need a taxi you may have to walk a few blocks.
