Otovalo scenes and sites...

We were kind of distracted by Peguche,  Espejo, and San Pablo, so we didn't get much of a chance to do any serious browsing in Otovalo.  We did take several photos, and we wanted to put them in, just to give a sample of the place.

The fabric market is really large and confusing.  This is the time you really need to have cell phones that can contact the other person in your party...easy to get lost...reminded me of the Fun House in San Francisco...

First we have some statues...  

This splendid fellow is actually sitting near the road as you enter Espejo, about 5 km south of Otovalo...

 

Here are some shots of the offerings...

 

 

 

 

 

 And...there are plenty of vendors everyplace else in Otovalo, too...

 

This is just a bare sample of all the nice stuff that you can see here in this town...It is definitely worth the trip...

And...for you folks who take the taxi death trips from Quito...here is a tip...Hold out a $20 bill and tell the driver that it is his tip.  You will take a dollar away from the tip each time he scares you by passing on a hill or curve, or by going too fast for the conditions...it works every time!
