diá de mercado

Outdoor Market / Quito, Ecuador
Given the choice of freshly butchered chicken or guinea pig (locally know as cuy), the chicken was definitely the more appetizing of the two. Cuy is served grilled as a favorite dish of the Andean people. One little old woman was wandering around the market pulling live squirming guinea pigs out of her pocket, trying to find a happy dinner table for them.
