Otavalo Ecuador

Textiles and More


While in Ecuador we took a little trip to Otavalo. Otavalo is known for it's textiles and their Saturday Market. We spent some time wandering and took it all in. I have created a slide show of some of the sights. We were there for the Saturday Market which is the biggest day of the week. It was a bit overwhelming there was so much, however we went back on Sunday and it was so much smaller but there were no food vendors. It was fun to be able to see the spices and fruits and vegetables out on display. I think the thing that got me was how these hard working people set up and take down each day. I just can not imagine doing a quilt show where I had to pack it all in, set up, sell all day, pack up and haul it out... Every single day!
