In my mailbox I found these pictures from a girl eating snails (probably Naesiotus sp.) on a Quito-Otavalo autobus. Adri??n Gonz??lez, who took the pictures, told me that normally at Halloween time in November (Day of the Death); this is a custom in Ecuador. But the people around Otavalo seems to be especially fond of snails, as they are selling (and eating) them all year round.
