We'll be traveling from July 13-26, back to Kuna Yala, Panama... so we'll post a new Quito Portrait when we return. But in the meantime, here's another image from the streets...
In this week's Quito Portrait, we hear from Tomás Echeverria - a single man who ekes out a meager living with his guitar.
In the third of our series of mini photo/audio portraits of people in Quito, we hear from our favorite fruit vendor at Mercado Santa Clara - Leonor Medina.
In the second installment of our Quito Portrait series, we visit with Alejandro Hinojosa, a young entrepreneur born in the U.S. to Ecuadorean parents, who in the last year and a half has started two small hotels.
