[pre-recorded blog post yet again…]
After five days of hard work in a strange land we try to relax. If we’re up in the north of the country we take a day trip to Otavalo, the site of an Indigenous market. That is, on Saturdays Otavalo IS an Indigenous market. They close off the downtown and set up shop everywhere. And we buy stuff. Not very relaxing.
Part of our fundraising comes from the sale of Ecuadorian handcrafts like sweaters, handbags, scarves, hammocks and more. Everything is colorful and the styles change over the years.
Here are some photos of previous years in Otavalo. I don’t think we’ll get there this year, but there are other opportunities.
