Living in Centro Historico Quito. December 2017. Quito, Ecuador.

One of the perks living in Centro Historico Quito - you can run across high-rank officials on a street or plaza. There is something exciting about receiving handshake from people of power, they have energy and charisma one can feel up close and personal. 
I already have two mayors of Quito handshakes in my collection: Paco Moncayo's from 2007 and Mauricio Rodas from 2015.
During the Day's of Quito 2017 celebration I spent few nights in La Ronda condo, walking around the Old Town during these days, and here she was, the acting Vice President of Ecuador, participating in one of the events in Centro Historico. I approached her security guy, there were lots of them, and asked what should I do to say "Hi". 
Well, I received detail instructions, followed them and what do you know, it wasn't handshake, it was a hug! from acting Vice-President of Ecuador!***
I told her that I am happy with current government and she replied "Thank you!" 

*** Vice President of Ecuador is under investigation into accusations of bribery. He is in jail in Quito, as for December 2017.
