(MODEL RELEASED IMAGE). Cultivating potatoes on a windy afternoon, Ermelinda Ayme wraps her baby in two shawls tied in different directions. When she and her husband Orlando arrived at the field, a ten-minute walk from their home in Tingo, Ecuador, they said a quick prayer to Pacha Mamma (Mother Earth) before working the land. Occasionally, Ermelinda has to adjust the baby's position, but generally she has no problem carrying her tiny passenger. Hungry Planet: What the World Eats (p. 117).
