Word on the street (Quito)

A few images of some of the pervasive and diverse street art around Quito. Some of it is straight forward, some is a bit more symbolic, and some makes no apparent sense at all. Forgive my Spanish if i try and translate a bit.

October 12th, 1492 –
when god created eden he thought of america

Sweat Lodge

Orcas,San Juan Islands, Washington

One of the things on the agenda for my visit was to help build a sweat lodge with my father. After a little reseach we began the building process, many things fell into place perfectly and we were finish in about 3 days. It was a pleasure to build and many animals stopped by to watch along the way. Here are photographs documenting the process.

The site was chosen partially for this beautiful old growth Ceder

The fire to heat the stones

The firepit is slightly off alignment in order to protect the Ceder’s roots.
