My Dear Fellow Shoppers,

Who can resist a local market?  I can’t. 

Just outside Latacunga, the Saquisili Thursday market provides a morning’s entertainment.

Local food.  Local clothing.  Local tools.  Local art. (I bought a Tiagua painting.)

A line of tailors make on-the-spot repairs and alterations as they foot-pump their ancient Singer sewing machines.
