Traveling to Ecuador? Consider planning your trip around the end of the year for the Christmas festivities called Pase del Niño Viajero.

On December 24 each year, a day-long celebration of the travels of Mary & Joseph takes place through the Ecuadorian town of Cuenca. What’s the have to do with bacon you ask? Take a look at the following photo.

See you all in Ecuador this Christmas!
