72 years of homegrown citrus clashing with sun-kissed fish and gasoline. ‘El Naranjero’ sits along the boardwalk of Chipipe, a small coastal town whose arm outstretches South America’s most Western tip and Ecuador’s once-thriving oil basin. I pass him every morning, peeling micro-economies with scaled fingers.
