    ... from the locals whose average height seemed to be around 5'2. I must have looked like a giant pasty blonde alien at 5'8! New things I've eaten : 1. Yuca : similar to plantain and tastes a bit like parsnip 2. Emolliente : a medicinal drink which can be adapted depending on your ailment, made from pure aloe vera, various fruit juices, herbs and aniseed added. The texture is double the thickness of honey but it doesn't taste sweet. My blood ...

    ... in, dropped my bags and left to walk around town a little bit. I also stopped by the few market stalls that were still open to get an idea of what was being sold and get a feel for the market and the apparently world-famous indigenous sales people.

    Otavalo is a once sleepy town nestled between three volcanic giants in Northern Ecuador. Although it's close to the equator, its high altitude gives is a year round spring feeling. Otavalo is famous for its Saturday market, the largest outdoor market in the world. Although the fresh produce, clothing, textiles, and artists markets are open all week long, the activity explodes on Saturday, when about 1/3 of the town becomes market stalls. It's here that Sam ...

    This is the second time I've visited Otavalo, and I managed to venture further out into the surrounding mountains during my latest sojourn. The mostly-indigenous town is nestled in the Andes of Northern Ecuador at 8200' and is world-famous for its market, which is probably the most popular in Latin America along with Chichicastenango, Guatemala. Many people here speak Quechua, as well as ...
