We traveled by city bus. It took about 45 minutes. I enjoy riding the buses in Quito because it gives you a snapshot of the everyday lives of the people living in the city. The buses are always packed.
The nice thing about riding the buses with Sila from the school is that she is always helping me with my Spanish while we are seeing the city.
The museum is located in the residential area of Bellavista.
The museum not only displays Guayasamín’s works, but also pieces from his personal collection. A lot of his art reflects the struggle of mankind, especially the poor .
Here are some photos of some of his works both outside and inside the museum.
At the museum you can get a guide, which I highly recommend. Ours spoke Spanish only, so it gave me a chance to practice my listening skills. I missed a lot in the translation, but it was still a great experience.
