Otavalo is famous for its Saturday's markets: animals and handicrafts. The animals market (Mercado de Animales) begins at 5:00am and runs to 9:00am. All the animals are livestock (horses, cows, sheep, pigs, chicken) or pets (dogs, cats). It is busy place where people want to sell and the other bargain to get a right price. Between those people I saw an elderly lady that took a nap not carrying much about the market. As others were busy at the market she was enjoying her dreams.

Great portrait of this woman with the typical clothes of the region. I have a picture like that, but with a Bolivian woman. Excellent depth of field to emphasize her! Wonderful composition!
