Otavalo, Ecuador

Traveling Real doesn’t get much more real when you find yourself in any indigenous town, but especially in Otavalo. Surrounded by incredible scenery, it’s famous for its Saturday market where travelers can buy a bunch of colorful artesanía ( goods made by hand ) and enjoy local-watching ( people come from nearby towns, like Cotacachi, to sell their goods ) because many of the area’s inhabitants dress and wear their hair in a distinct way. Fortunately I traveled to Otavalo during a holiday so there was an air of festivity in the air.
