Ecuadorian Traditions - Music, Flutes, Puppet show and Feria Libre

Today we're going to post a video about some of the different Ecuadorian traditions here in Cuenca.

                   

FYI: There are many festivities going on in Cuenca starting tomorrow (November 3rd) and going on through next week. Many businesses will close, streets will be barricaded off for shoppers and the artisans will display their handicrafts--lots of food booths, dancing and music. It is a celebration of the independence of Cuenca from the Spanish. On November 3rd, 1820, Cuencanos achieved their freedom.
