Dawn in the middle of the world


AirVuz contributor andpilot Juanca created this beautiful drone video of the Ecuadorean capital Quito.  Surrounded by immense volcanoes, Quito itself lies at an altitude of almost 3k meters above sea level (over 9k ft.), making it the second highest capital city in the world after Bolivia's La Paz.  Founded in the 16th century by Spanish conquistadores, Quito is considered the best-preserved of the major South American colonial cities, and its city center has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
