Steve at the crater lake Quilotoa up in the Andes

At the market in Otavalo, you can find whatever you are looking for,
from raw chicken, to choclo and hammocks.

The children at the El Batan community project were always cheerful and ready with a smile.
We were able to participate in several projects to help the country communities with clothing donations,
Christmas programs, building a Mission Outreach Center, and other work skills development.

The local children lined the roads at Christmas time, hoping for a little
Christmas cheer. We were able to provide them with a toy, clothing, and candy.

Everywhere you went, the children were strapped to the backs of the women,
whether they were carrying other items, or trying to sell you something.

Not really Ecuador, but actually my favorite shot from travels in Peru!
