Quito is a large enough city that there is pretty much everything here that you could find in other places to stay busy for a while. There are shopping malls, markets, movies, theaters, parks, casinos, nightclubs and many restaurants for all budgets. All have somewhat of an Ecuadorian feeling, but nothing so unique that stands out from other places in South America or the world. Blame it on globalization.* After doing some internet research it seems that these experiments are bunk and have nothing to do with being at the equator. I am not quite sure what to believe, but regardless it is still enjoyable at the museum. If tourists at the equator are fish, we'd be biting.
