Guayaquil, Ecuador

Tuesday, 26 June 2007

We finally got underway yesterday to begin our adventures in Peru. We left Bahia de Caraquez on the 9:30 AM bus on Monday and are now staying at our favorite inexpensive hotel in Guyaquil, Ecuador – the Hotel California. We pay $25 US for a room with air conditioning, hot water, cable TV and breakfast. Today was spent checking out more of the sites of this city. We walked the length of the main central street to the Malecon Salada along the Salt River, stopping to enjoy ice cream sundies at one of the many small eateries. Tomorrow we will head further south to Loja – still in Ecuador – for a few nights before continuing on to the border and into Peru.
