Every Thursday there is a public market in the town of Saquisili. We went to the market with our Spanish teacher Silvana and one other student from Germany. The market is famous for being slightly cheaper than the Otavalanian market to the North of Quito. The Otavalanian market is more artisan based. The Saquisili market has more household wares. They both have animal markets.
Cuy The cuy/guinea pigs are a highlands favorite and sell for about what we pay for lobster. They grill them over the BBQ with lots of butter and they eat every part. Kerensa has eaten cuy on two different occations. It is kind of like eating salty beef jerky.
