About this photo

Chimborazo Province in Ecuador is known for its indigenous people who live in traditional ways. They farm the land to produce corn and potatoes and keep herds of llamas and alpacas. The people who live in this rural area favour traditional, multicoloured, clothing; you will see many people strolling the streets of the villages and wandering around the markets in traditional dress.
