San Andres was the town I could never remember. I knew I liked it, but I didn’t know what it was called. I didn’t, and still don’t, know what most of the places we stopped in Ecuador were called. Something to work on in the future I suppose. Thankfully, back when I saved my pictures, I labeled my folders by day and the main place we stopped. So I know some of these are from San Andres and some are from that place with ice cream in every shop and clown garbage cans on every corner.
Why clowns? I wish I knew. It was pretty bizarre. The ice cream was good though. Man, I miss the little strawberry flavored ice cream hearts. I could eat those all day. I think I’m off topic.
We had a short stay in San Andres, two nights I think, and one of them was spent on a party bus into Riobamba. The other night was dinner followed by a birthday party of some local guy. They gave us whiskey and we danced.
I think it was on our way to San Andres that we tried the guinea pig. It was delicious. Weird to see, but delicious. That was the first of a few weird things we ate. Llama and cow skin soup soon followed.
This was an odd few days. Fun though. I saw a dog on a roof and a statue that reminded me of Voldemort, but with hair. He’s down at the bottom of the page. A zip line on a playground was fixed and empanadas were eaten. I forgot how busy that trip was.
Have you been to Ecuador? What about San Andres? What did you think of it? Which picture is your favorite?
