Anna Caroline de Lima – ECUADOR
When the first rays of sunlight appear at the window, before even preparing breakfast for her family, María Dolores goes outside her house, at La Quebrada, Northern Ecuador, to burn some dry twigs to produce smoke. This is a traditional practice that
helps to prevent crops from being harmed by frost. “My grandmother taught me how do to it. You have to know which way the wind is blowing and must do it early in the morning”.
