Today I’m bringing you a photo with a story behind it for the Friday photo hosted by Debbie of Delicious Baby.
Last October I spent three weeks travelling in Ecuador and one of the nicest places we stayed was the town of Banos. It’s in the lowlands between the Andean highlands and the steamy jungle where the river tributaries start their journey to meet the Amazon.
In the fields out of town you can see sugar cane growing everywhere and in the town itself are many stalls selling sugar cane drinks and toffee called melcocha. The sellers pull the toffee on hooks in shop doorways before it’s made into many different kinds of colourful sweets.
It was my trip to Ecuador that re-awakened my love of travel and photography and inspired me to start writing this blog. You see where a bit of toffee can lead you!
You can see all my photos on flickr here.
