Greeting's to all from beautiful Ecuador!!!! A bright and sunny upper 70's today, will get down to the lower 60's to upper 50's tonight, making a perfect temp for a restful evening....Spent today at the "La Ofelia Marcado-market" & i can tell you from a chef's point of view---I was in heaven...Although i try to take as many pics & share them with you as possible, they still cannot begin to scratch the surface of the depth & range of this incredible market...It seems as though, anything, you could possibly imagine & mostly things you have never heard of or seen, is available here...Nature's bounty is in full effect in Ecuador...I could easily spend 10hrs at this Saturday market and still not scratch the surface...What a joy & inspiring opportunity...My mind was blazing with different ways i could cook & prepare all of this stuff....I was pleasantly surprised to find out that a great friend of mine, and fellow Chef, Jodi, will be joining me down here on the 4th of November for about a week & i am soooooo excited to show her the market as well as the site's...Skype has been working great for me & has allowed me to keep up with the fam & friends & even have some video call's so i can see my beautiful sister's face's...Make's my travel's a bit easier & hopefully lessens their anxiety about the (out of the way place's) i visit...Love to all & ttys.... Psssss....The wooden looking contraption that look's like the guy is feeding something into, is a sugar cane press & extract's pure sugar cane juice, just add a little lime & you have an amazing, refreshing, all natural juice....
