    To celebrate Earth Day with my kid's art class, we decorated little plastic cups filled with small plants.  Many of the kids kept their plants alive at home for several weeks!

    Yes, I ate a guinea pig.

  3. Ecuador Ecuador Artesania

    The artisan market in Otovalo, Ecuador is a major attraction in Ecuador, and one of my favorite places to visit.

  4. Ecuador Kids in the Barrio

    These are some of the many wonderful and beautiful children that changed my life in Ecuador.
