Issue 24 - Celebrating life: Ecuador’s goes all out!
The Ecuadorian fiesta popular continues to represent that crack in the calendar through which the immemorial, the unfathomable, the intractable, and the essential, filter through. During any Ecuadorian fiesta, the country transcends its political borders; it returns to the land and forgets its name; it stops in its tracks, it gets hammered, gets all prettied up, dances the night away, reinvents itself, comes to its knees, thanks and prays and explodes like a thousand firecrackers in the sky.
