Quito Cantando

Diana´s awesome in-home studio:

Hangin round the house...

Hello again, Guayasamín.

Teatro Sucre.

People traffic.

La Plaza Grande.

La Iglesia de la Compañía.

Small exhibition in honor of the 100 years of Machu Picchu´s ¨discovery¨ (by a white man). Foreshadowing...!

Interesting photographic exhibition, Vidas Minadas, by Gervasio Sánchez, documenting the lives of people around the world injured by mine fields from wars past.

First sightings of traditional braids!

Facade of Iglesia San Francisco.

Splendor of the interior.

Somebody´s got family in the states!

Got there just in time for ¨peace be with you¨. Love that part.

Sipping warm cañelazo and listening to traditional Ecuadorian music on La Ronda.

Diana shocks us all with her powerful voice!

Concierto Las Américas by Humanizarte put on varied show of traditional Andean dances.

Really moving piece danced to Mercedes Sosa´s ¨Todo cambia¨.

HAHA me and all the children.

After the dance, some kids living on the street asked us for money. Diana encouraged them to find their talents, namely singing and dancing...

Gettin down!
