Thought I would start a series of photos that feature some of the Ecuadorian art that you find in the country. Todays photo is a tapestry wall hanging, made in Otavalo, the artisan town that I have featured a few times on here.

Every time we drive by this location (to and from the artisan town of Otavalo), we wonder what these white things are in the valley...though assume they have something to do with flowers/roses or something of the like. Any ideas?

Allow me to introduce you to Patch, the rabbit of friends of ours. He was pretty nervous and hunkered down low amidst the children (particularly my three-year old) but all in all was very gracious with the petting, poking and pulling.
Incidently, did you know that you can't get rid of red eye on a rabbit? Somehow our red eye remover software must recognize an animal eye from that of a person and I couldn't even do it manually. Crazy bit o' information for you. :)

This is little Sumel - isn't she adorable? She is awaiting a cochlear implant as she is deaf but her family is very, very poor and so I do not know when or if it will ever happen. My daughter and I see her once a week at speech therapy and it's always so fun as she is so full of life. She has learned to say "bye bye" to our daughter, though her first language is Spanish. :)

Progress is being made next door where they tore down this building. There is obviously going to be some sort of underground parking based on the depth of the hole they dug. Thank goodness for that since parking around here is hard to come on our busy street. We have enjoyed periodic looks out our 4th story bathroom window to see what they're doing, and it appears now that they are making smooth the edges of the hole by hand. Wow. They have been working late into the dark night as well, doing what we think is some sort of cement and rebar work. It's kind of fun hearing them yelling and whistling to get one anothers attention about this and that...a noisy bunch they are!

The pineapple here in Ecuador is fabulously sweet and tasty. I don't normally care for pineapple (do we have a theme going here?) but there is definitely something different about it. Anyway, enjoy this large, full truck of piña! If you can't see it peeking out, click to enlarge! This shot was taken from the wide open upstairs of a restaurant by the beach.
