Friday photo - sleeping in a canoe in Ecuador

Today I'm joining in the Friday photo with Debbie at Delicious Baby, to bring you a photo from my travels with a story behind it. I spent three weeks last October travelling with friends in Ecuador and one of the highlights was our stay in the rainforest village of Sarayaku.

Children sleeping in a canoe in Sarayaku

We were invited to a Minga one evening, a kind of reciprocal arrangement where a family asks the community to help them with some building or farming work, in return for hosting a big party in the evening.

Which just goes to show that kids, when tired, will sleep anywhere, anytime. Cool photo.

What struck me about this photo is the universality of children sleeping just about anywhere. It definitely looks like they feel asleep mid-game!
