Cotacachi People

by | Mar 10, 2009 | Archives

The people of Cotacahi are first and foremost , the asset that makes this village great.

Recent messages have looked at the excellent Cotacachi service… but the wonderful people reduce the need for emergency services. You do not hear sirens blasting away in Cotacachi often because there are not many emergencies!

Merri and I take walks every morning and it is a happy time where we meet our many Cotacachi friends.

We begin at the bakery… for a bite of hot, out of the oven, bread.


Our baker smiles and salutes.  His assistant knows exactly what we want and has it ready as we walk in the door.  20 cents for two hot rolls.


We stop the street sweeper and give him a tip with a “thanks for making our village so beautiful”!


We speak to all the young children headed for school… on their own.


Laborers are already working by 7am,  continually improving the sidewalks and roads.


This gentleman just stands in his doorway. Every morning he is there for a “Buenas Dias.”


We drop off some shoes at the shoeshine man.   50 cents to shine a pair though we give him a dollar. When we return from a trip his wife hugs us like we are family.


He puts our shoes on the sidewalk to advertise his services.


We love the wonderful traditional dress that so many men and women in Cotacachi wear.


What a way to start the day…a healthy walk… pleasant weather…so many smiles… waves and friendliness… because of Cotacachi’s people.


Until next message may all of your people be wonderful as well.
