The painting competition at El Matal Ecuador supplied countless photo opportunities, and a small fraction of those launched the”Got Paint?” post.   

This quiet fishing village embraced the out-of town visitors who came for the San Pedro-San Pablo festivities.

Enjoy the eclectic mix of photos taken over the two-day period.

Shouldn’t he be looking the other way? No, he’s talking to —–

Why stay inside on a beautiful day?!!!

Note the pinkie finger…

…Must be the genetic trait of a zeebra!…

As always, there are some who linger behind and watch from a distance!

…and others remain responsible and help with the daily tasks…

After too many hours in the sun, I told everyone, “Goodbye,” and took the next ‘collectivo’ home —-  only to be warmly greeted by my neighbor who questioned my month-long absence!

It feels good to be home, sweet home on the river!  🙂 Z
