May 2005



Nearly 2 months without our truck. We find la Gazelle with a great pleasure at the main harbour of Ecuador.

Guayaquil :

There is a rivalry between the coast and the mountain... Guayaquil is the main city of the coast and gets more and
more modern.
We are welcomed in Erika's home, who is member of the worldwide hospitality club :
Her family gets a chicken farm...
The chickens get only 2 hours of sleep per day... they grow in 12 weeks.

Quito : Colonial city at the altitude of 2850 meters
                                               Monastery San Francisco

                Jesus is not represented with the same look in all
                                                           parts of the world


He is the most famous painter of Ecuador. His museum in Quito is absolutely wonderful
The works on the hands and the expression of suffering are just great



Otavallo : The ecuador people say that there are two major markets in South America : Cuzco in Peru and Otavallo
A part of it is very touristic where we can find the colors...

...and the other part is more local                                    sale of eggs in the back of a truck
                               for the lunch, guinea-pig or pork ?


                     to reach Otavallo, we cross the equator
                        0 degree South, 78 degrees West
