    Women in traditional clothes

    by MalenaN Written Mar 9, 2014

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the beginning of the trail up on Rucu Pichincha there was a group of women dressed in colourful traditional clothes singing. They did it because it was also filmed. It was very beautiful with the colourful dresses, the singing, the view of the mountains in the background and the blue sky, so I had to stop for a while watching.

    Yes? or No?

    For most people, the sound "eh-eh" significe "no", and "aha", significes "yes." HOWEVER, in this little part of the world, the sound "EH-EH" = "YES".
    This can be very confusing to begin with, and even if you are aware of the difference, it will take you a couple of seconds extra to comprehend what they actually meant. Who know that such a simple thing could be such a big deal?
