Just a few days later, the habaneros look even better. I was lucky enough to pick them all before it froze.

This is about a week ago - with a little okra on top:

and this is from today:

Made a small glass full of home made ketchup, boiled a bit of tomato puree in apple vinegar, plus salt, 3 habaneros and a pressed garlic clove - done. I keep it in the freezer, but I think it should keep a few days anyway (because of acidity and capsaicin).

It tastes well - super spicy, though.

Peppers and Fruits, to be exact.

The medium green items  and the orange in the upper left are Habaneros. Hm, good but really spicy. The small red items are Chile Piquin and Chile Tipin, both pretty hot, some more, some less.
The big green items are not really ripe Pineapple Guavas - delicious in juices, but also just fresh. Once ripe I know them yellow, but these are edible already. And the one really yellow item in the lower right is a Meiwa Kumquat.

Galapagos Trip - Quito, Ecuador

What a city!
Staying for about 2 days only  - what can you see, truly - but wonderful two days.

Nice airport, really. Less than 2 years old, we've been told. 

Beautiful old town Quito - with the colorful houses and narrow streets. We walked some!

Parque el Ejido in central Quito

View from a park to the mountain ranges around Quito.

Basilica del Voto Nacional

One of the steep streets in Quito - lots of people with cars, but more walking on these wonderful days with look at the angel statue 'el Panecillo'.

Sunday in front of the palacio presidencial. 

Downtown - one of the colorful houses. Lots of flowers in many places, and lots of sculptures, too!
