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?

I tried the Cuy in Quito and I enjoyed it also.
Delicious! Thank you!
It seems so weird to eat guinea pig, I have not tried it before but I’m sure it does taste good, it just seems sooooo weird!
It was definitely weird to see it whole like that when we ate it, but I’d eat it again!
