Many locals have animals in their home, cows, sheep, goats, chickens, etc. Here your see a photo of a local, from a small village in the Cotopaxi province taking food to their animals, instead of taking the animals to the food, they go out collect the grass, carry it all on their back, a heavy load, to the animals, you see this a fair amount with the older people, the man in the photo was around 60+ . He will do this around twice a day. Crazy or what. But thats life here in Ecuador. This photo was taken from the moving car.
