Ecuadorian culture seems obsessed with the dead. There’s Dia De Los Muertes, a separate holiday. New Year’s, which is being celebrated outside as I write this, is all about burning dolls dressed as people in huge bondfires.

Below is a pic of one such doll, though instead of it being rugged and on a street corner or on a car bumper (both typical places), it’s nicely dressed with a mask, sitting in a chair in a restaurant.
