Plaza, Tena, Ecuador, 2015

Two waterways, the Río Tena and Río Pano, merge and split the city of Tena in half. The northwest side contains this central square, quieter neighborhoods, and hostels—ideal for a leisurely stroll. Statue in the middle of this unusual plaza is of the indigenous hero Jumandy, who courageously led an uprising against the Spanish colonizers in 1578, and was subsequently executed.
Two other small photos are from the nearby bus station.
