Shawl Vendors, Quito

At the Plaza de San Francisco in Quito’s centro historico, just two of the dozens of vendors who hawk shawls, scarves, fruit, drinks, gum, cigarettes, meals and sweets there each day, and among the multitudes who fan out across the city.

This was taken during the tail end of an anti-government demonstration as protesters gathered and milled about the square. These three weren’t paying much attention, enjoying instead each others’ company, gossiping, laughing and sharing tea as they knitted.


Today’s Pic du Jour, the 437th straight, was taken on 19 March 2015, and is this week’s contribution to Lost in Translation, a new-to-me blog, and host Paula’s Thursday challenge, ‘multitudes‘.
