Alpacas and sheep at the animal market, Saquisilí, Ecuador
Digital Photo by Richard McGuire
The Thursday morning market at Saquisilí, just outside Latacunga, is said to be the most important market in Ecuador aimed at local people, rather than tourists. The animal market just outside is the most interesting, as people examine and haggle over pigs, sheep, cattle, alpacas, and the odd horse or donkey. With their traditional outfits and animated spirits, the people are even more interesting to watch than the animals.
