Good Morning, World! (Breakfast art by Hank Groff) Photo by Marie Groff

Emerging from a ‘painting fog,’ I am groping for clarity of mind to pull this post together! Painting and conversation don’t mix well, even if my conversation is with the keyboard!  Attempting to catch up with Frizztext’s story alphabet, I present to you a wide variety of breakfast items from Ecuador.   Desayuno by any other name would still equal breakfast!

Breakfast/desayuno isn’t just for humans! The birds in the pond (below) were having an all-you-can-eat buffet of shrimp!

Birds can quickly damage the yields of shrimp ponds, though the presence of egrets actualy tips the producer off that the shrimp are not well. Low oxygen levels often cause the shrimp to come to the surface, where the waders can do a lot of damage to the yield. I emailed the above image to my friends when I looked out the window and saw this early-morning raid!

A coastal remedy for hangovers is Encebollado.   A cold cervesa is often suggested as part of that cure!   Find out more about this ‘Tuna Soup’ breakast specialty HERE.

Finding an early-morning cup of coffee is difficult in Jama Ecuador. This street-dining cafe serves coffee and empanada around seven each morning then closes shop several hours later!  (If you bring your own eggs, he’ll hard boil them in the coffee water!)

Street dining doesn’t sound too appetizing?  Maybe I can tempt you with just-caught grilled tuna for breakfast?
