The Eyes of a Country | Portraits from a Month in Ecuador

June 21, 2017

By Galit Govezensky

I traveled through the Andes mountain range in Ecuador for a month with Nir, my partner.

We walked through the old alleyways in Quito, celebrated New Year’s Day with the locals, visited Quilotoa lake and enjoyed the small villages in the area, and went to the beautiful town of Vilcabamba – known as the Valley of Longevity. I stayed in the Ecuador a little longer than Nir and explored the Afro-Ecuadorian villages in the Valle del Chota, shopped in the largest market of South America in the town of Otavalo, and of course ate lots of grilled bananas, empanadas, and potatoes prepared in endless varieties.
