Rainbow Man

Every Sunday he visits the Carolina Park in Quito presenting his colors. The price of a color is 10 cents. For a dollar you can get the entire rainbow.

Then you can look for treasure at the end of the rainbow. But with no guarantees from the Rainbow Man. This is not his job.

The Tree God

From immemorial  times The Tree God has ruled Ecuador. He is not figuring on any official lists of statesmen and presidents, but that does not matter. He knows he is in charge. Not even President Correa will dare to challenge him.

However the rainforest department has several times frightened him with  closure.

Here he is rendered by a local artist in this year's carnival. Unlike some other fearful religions, the Tree God not bother showing his face .

Beware of the tourists

They have taken the Plaza Foch in their possession. With long confident steps they are parading like victoorious Germans one April day in Norway 1940.
