One day early in June I went out to about a dozen different households with a few committee members in my cooperative (this was groundwork for two big projects my sitemate Wendy has going that I hope to help on… more details in a later post). It was a nice little taste of getting outside the “town” of Chiyó (take that with a heaping spoonful of salt) and into the other communities. Here are a few pics, courtesy of Wendy’s friend Thomas who was visiting from the states.

Sometimes you have to watch your head.
Sometimes you have to watch your feet.
Houses tend to be pretty isolated from one another, surrounded by crops.
