MELT YOUR HEART with the children of Ecuador. The parade on Christmas Eve in Cuenca, Ecuador is world famous, both for its pageantry, beauty, and length. The parade lasts about eight hours and it has some of the most colorful costumes, animals, horses decorated with food, dancing troupes, and many tributes to the baby Jesus on his birthday. The children are a huge part of the parade and are mesmerizing, so well behaved and so beautiful, as only children can be. The length of the parade took its toll on many of them, some even falling asleep in the saddle. I took 890 photos this date so you will get to see a few of these. I also have 39 videos of the dance troupes that I have uploaded to YouTube under the handle alabca starting with http://youtu.be/GAHITn7JWpU.
This artwork is derived from a photograph taken December 24/11 at Cuenca, Ecuador, South America.
