Children of Ecuador

Children of Ecuador. A trio of kids came running up to us as we descended a mountain in Chugchillan, a rural province in the Andes mountain range. We didn't speak much Spanish but we could tell they were asking us for candy. We handed a Snickers bar and the boy (center) proceeded to divide it among his brother (left) and sister (right).
