Otavalo Market

Hi everybody,
Today, i will talk about Imbabura province, which is located in the mountains, about 2 hours away from Quito. There are many town that we can visit in that province, as Otavalo. This large indigenous town is one of the most visited  place by tourists in Ecuador, especially because of the beautiful handcraft market. The indigenous Otavalo people are famous for weaving textiles, usually made of wool.
In the market, we can find many things as stalls selling textiles, clothing, jewerly, leather goods, purses, indigenous costumes, hand-painted platters and trays, etc...
