getting political.

It’s political season here in Ecuador!

..which is why the outside of our house is painted with a mural in support of my host-parents’ candidate. Who needs yard signs when you can paint the outside of your home? 

Many days, the streets are filled with “parades”. These ones aren’t as fun as the parade of horses we had in September. In these “parades”, pick-up trucks decorated with the face of the candidate they are supporting drive around the streets waving flags out the side of the vehicle and honking. Each of them honks to whatever beat they choose and when 10 trucks are honking to their own rhythm, the result is a clash of ugly noise-makers that is sure to get your attention. 

¡Vota todo!
