Comment by Jour-Ja: Thanks to my few followers, I will try to do more original & better content next year! But I just had to share the above photo right here at Thanksgiving Time! What a Beautiful Ecuadorian Family in their humble abode w/ and abundance of Food! Let's not forget those less fortunate than we at all times as well as this time of year, be sure to reach out to your fellow man & woman, give them a hug & encouragement, not everyone lives on the Equator w/ a year round growing Season.
...you talk about Thankful~ and happy to have an abundance of fresh food:-) The family in the picture lives in Tingo, a small town just outside of Quito, ECUADOR -
The picture was taken by Peter Menzel, for a book he did with his wife, Faith D'Aluisio, called "Hungry Planet: What the World Eats."
Do note in photo over the Father's head is an "Angel's Trumpet Plant - Brugmansia / Floripondio (can be made into Scopolamine) used by EC Indigenous to help the young children & babies to sleep well and have sweet dreams,
..but is also commonly found in Boliva / Peru / COL ( and other SA countries) and is also used by other aspects of SA society in the Scopolamine form for nefarious reasons, it puts you sort of under a spell / trance like state for- date rape - take me to your ATM etc etc crimes., so be on your toes and alert at this time of year: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scopolamine
