Photo of the Day: Ecuador Dinner

Community Dinner

Dream Trip 2009 is well underway! For inspiration, here's a new entry that caught our eye:

Slivers cascade from weathered fingers. In the foreground, a pair of hands cradles something. In the background, a figure inspects an object. Are these prospectors panning for gold? Farmers examining soil?

Dream Trip entrant mich10021 describes the down-to-earth scene captured in the enigmatic image "A Community Dinner":

"I was visiting an indigenous community in Ecuador in an area known for its beautiful Andean landscapes," mich10021 writes. "However, my favorite photo of this trip is not of mountains, it is of the women preparing a dinner outside the local school. The smells, the crackling fire, and the constant stirring and toasting of peanuts will forever be in my mind. I even had a taste of roasted guinea pig!"
