    ... most days we had plans. We all went back to shower and siesta, only to wake up feeling the effects of the sun! All of us went to dinner a little pink! We ate and then it was time to hit cocktail alley. This is a famous strip on a dirt road that leads down to the beach that is made up of about 40 or 50 wooden stalls, each with there own menu. We picked out a stall where the tender also did a few tricks with the bottles and cups. ...

    ... me to go to another terminal to try and get a bus there. This is still all in Spanish so it was really confusing! I got to the terminal and again, I was told there wasn't room but I told them it was really important I got to Quito and they took pity and squeezed me on. Literally. I spent the first 3 hours on a normal bus seat, then at 1am I had to switch to sit next to the driver for 2 hours. The door was wide open, and the bus conductor was ...

    ... told us all about the surrounding area, including Montanita which was the town at the other end of the beach. We were also told about a cicada infestation that had hit the place only a few days earlier. It sounded horrendous; large, flying cockroach looking bugs had apparently come in drones and swamped the town. Apparently it was rainfall that drove them in from a nearby forest.
