Colors and Textures of Ecuador

Our last post on Ecuador was dated November 2010. And so the journey continues. What follows is a visual post of the colors, textures and faces found in an environment almost frozen in time.

Making Panela

Boiled sugarcane is poured into blocks. Soluble in any liquid, it retains many of the components of raw cane juice, but in higher concentrations. Colombia holds the world record for the heaviest panela block. Created in 2009, in the city of Palmira,  it weighed 1,576 lbs.

Igloos south of the equator?

A parting shot….
