Photo Friday: Mitad Del Mundo

Mitad Del Mundo Ecuador

We started our family world trip in Quito, Ecuador.

The Mitad Del Mundo is easily accessible via the blue line public buses from central Quito. There is an expressway which runs along Av America and Av Del La Prensa.

We paid less than $5 there and back for all four of us.
