Otavalo is a little town in the Northern Ecuador.
It is very famous for its artisan fair where indigenous Kichwa people from the nearby villages sell their products.
When I first came to Ecuador in 1996 I lived in a bit bigger town near to Otavalo called Ibarra.
On Saturdays we would go to the Plaza de los Pochos to see all the products, the people and maybe buy something.
It is still one of my favorite places in Ecuador.
The colors are magnificent, and the people, stalls and handmade artisan products make it look magical.
