The Ghost Buliding

As a discreet shade. You almost doesn,t notice it, centrally located  close to the park Alameda. Plaza San Blas with its colonial church is aslo  located next door.

 This futuristic building from the fifties looms darkly in the center of Quito. What is its history? Once it was perhaps an ambitious project where financiers exchanged money and pulling the strings. Then they disappeared completely from the face of the earth.

Now it has been lonely and abandoned for many years, with its vengeful and grim look. Those who lays eyes on it realize it's better to walk by.

The Acrobat

This is my lad . What he can do balancing on the staircase!!

But what he gets paid for are indeed to renovate the windows on the crystal palace in the Itchimbia park in Quito.

And he probably don't get more than the standard local wages. They are supposingly a little lesser than you receive in the US or Canada. Risk allowance? I doubt it. You have to trust your acrobatic skills.
