Image Description: Two images are combined with a white gap separting them in the middle. The image on the left shows over a dozen plates that have been placed on a dinning room table covered with a brown striped Ecuadorian tablecloth. Arranged with care, each plate holds a different herb. Most are bright green and all are fresh. There is a small bowl of sugar, bottle of honey and 3 limes in the center and a bowl of oranges in the back. The caption is quite large, in the center of the image and a rectangular transparent dark background frames the text for contrast. In white text it says “arreglados cuidadosamente y con mucho cariño.” And below in yellow it says “Arranged with care,” On the right is the exact same image but the languages are flipped, on top in white it says “Arranged with care, each plate holds a different herb.” And below in yellow it says “Arreglados cuidadosamente y con mucho cariño, cada plate contiene hierbas diferentes.”
