Well I cannot say I felt it or that it changed anything to my life.... hahaha. I know there is a place 30km south of Quito which is "la mitad del mundo" but I did not bother going there. I mean that I was quite tired (physically speaking) and actually also mentally tired. I therefore did not do much there... went downtown, walked around... but mostly enjoyed some well deserved rest. Still Quito in itself did not seem to me exceptional. I mean that - like Lima - the town center is quite nice, with old colonial buildings... But otherwise I did not love the town. The district where I was staying in - very touristic again - was nice... but quite dangerous. In the hostal they did not advise to go out with anything of value... So I decided to continue my trip north after a few days of rest and headed for Cali.
