Mama Michi 2012
March 23, 2012

We spent a weekend in Cañar, two hours from Cuenca up in the highlands. Our host, Judy Blankenship introduced us to Mama Michi, a curandera with whom she has worked for many years. Judy accompanied Mama Michi to Washington D.C. several years ago when she was invited by the Smithsonian Instituion to represent Ecuador's indigenous people.

Looking South toward the edge of Cuenca from our apartment, two beautiful churches dominate our view - Parroquia Nuestra Señora del Carmen, and on top of the hill, the more famous old church of Turi.
