Mellow Yellows in Quito, Ecuador

Beautiful traditional Ecuadorian costumes at the Ballet Foklorico in Quito.

Everyone gathered to celebrate the founding of the city of Quito.
These photos were taken by my husband, Richard Schear, during our visits to Quito on our way to and from the Galapagos Islands in November and December, 2006. This trip was really the start of The Unfittie's Adventurous Travels abroad, as mentioned in the early posts on this blog.

This is one place I've never been but I absolutely love the people of the Andes; their language and their music and dance. I'm not sure if Quito qualifies as being in the Andes but I do know it is very high in elevation. Beautiful photos.

Such beautiful, vivid colors... yellow's one of my favorites (my childhood bedroom was yellow and a wall in my kitchen is, too).

These costumes are colorful and I see that they love hats. That hairpiece must be heavy! Thanks for sharing bits and pieces of the world.

Kay,
Quito must have been really magical to trigger off the travel bug. They are colorful people. Many noticed and commented on the hats. Appears to be a must, is it?
