Back in late May I learned of an event that was coming up, I looked briefly at the online flyer, and then shared it with the San Clemente/San Jacinto Expat page. As the date approached, people were asking me where it was being held, and who wanted to go...I had to be honost, I had assumed it was in Charapoto, but No...it was being held northeast of us, towards Bahia and then inland, the tiny village of La Laguna. We ended up getting enough people for two taxis and a truck, and all around it was an amazing turn out!
There were food vendors, with each having a little table space, there were vendors selling everything from used clothes to Panama Hats, hooch (liquor) of all varieties and artsy crafts. There was cultural dancing and judging of crops.
We sat and ate, walked and shopped. Enjoyed the festivities and the dancing (too much talking, and not enough dancing). Of course it wouldnt be an ecuadorean festival without the Queen...yep, the Queen of Corn.
Wow! She should wear that to the Crazy hat party tomorrow!! She may win! Dont want to miss that...so, stay tuned, the adventure continues!
