Rich Land

This is the last corn field that I painted in Ecuador, although I could have painted
 dozens more!  

The produce and agriculture in Ecuador is pretty amazing!  I read that Ecuador is one of the cradles of world agriculture in that it has rich soil, wonderful weather (it's right on the Equator) and plenty of sunshine. (Although while we were there they had more rain than in the past 5 years combined!).  We saw and ate so many fruits that were new to us.  We had so many delicious glasses of juice every day!  We always felt healthy.  I also read that there are 100s of varieties of corn in the Andes.  In fact, in Quito there is a corn market!
