Perros

This city has more dogs then most countries. Most of the time they are on rooftops, a strange place for a dog to be, and bark wildly as you walk down below. The fact that they appear calm in these photos is nothing more then a great illusion of photography.

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.

The forgotten pouch

Within my first week here in Quito I noticed something very important in the chain of food production and distribution that we are missing in the United States. We have neglected one of the most versatile containers in the distribution of food products….. The Pouch! Here are a few photo of some of the many things you can get in pouches here, perhaps they will inspire a revival of the pouch in Gringolandia.


Katchup

Yogurt

Peanut Butter

Olives

Oils

Mayo

Laundry Detergent

Jams and Jellies

Dish Detergent

Garli Paste

and it’s very common to buy Milk in a pouch

Now this isn’t in a pouch,and at first you think.. PB&J in a jar… big deal? then you notice the cow, cows don’t make PB. OMG it’s BUTTER and JAM in a jar!
