Introducing my new, and possibly very favorite, EcuaPrize...

Yeah, she's pretty awesome.
Dave and I found her at an antique store in Cuenca this past week. We were looking for a lighter for our gas stove since the matches they sell in Ecuador are plastic sticks that bend whenever you run them across the lighter strip. Dave picked out a standard black Zippo lighter, boring.
When I saw this beauty, which I have named Bombera, I had to have her. I can't help but think that this is an item my grandfather would have loved, makes me love her even more.
