Beach and bad weather

... writing this blog last night, across the foot of the bed. I had a nice big bed to sleep in and slept crossways across the foot of it. Not even under any blankets. It was so good to finally have some warm weather. Same as last time I was in Guayaquil, it was warm. Like no other place I have been in Ecuador.

Karla's mum has a seafood restaurant and we had to go there for breakfast. You can't say no, not only because I don't know ...

... have seen more of Ecuador? Sure. Would we have felt as rested and gotten to know everyone as well as we did - no. I like this pace. We do have the all night flight tonight, but I feel very rested and relaxed going into it. It has been a fabulous trip. Thanks for reading and coming along with us.

P.S. I've uploaded a lot of general pictures from the trip to go along with this post. I've enjoyed the trip down memory lane, I hope you do too.

... their political platforms! The students did not get the answers they wanted, but I still think it was a good experience for me to gain insight on youth culture in Portoviejo.

On Wednesday February 5th, 2014 I facilitated my first workshop with the youth group in order to conduct some concrete research on the topic of youth identity in Portoviejo. The main theme of my workshop was self-esteem, and it allowed me to have a more serious ...

... made from compacted sand. We have beach views from the room and it makes me feel at home as the sun sets over the beach :) there is no ATM in town and we needed some money so we hitchhiked in the back of a fisherman's truck to the next town along the coast- san Vincente to get to an ATM. Tim and I needed money to pay for Galapagos so we both took out a lot of ...

wow! i can't believe i have passed the halfway mark of this trip, and have moved on to the second part of my journey!

it was kind of surreal leaving central america... i had no idea what to expect of south america, and so far, it is very different! besides the obvious things like each country being larger than the whole of central america and such vast distances to travel, one of the first things i noticed was that nobody speaks english. barely at all. my spanish, which ...

    Apart from its location I have no complaints with Papaya. The double rooms are MORE than adequate and the private bathrooms have hot, high-pressure water mains. Beds have mosquito nets, there are desks, shelves and a floor fan for all your needs. At 8 to 10 dollars a night it's a bit exxy but you won't find anything all-inclusive (breakfast, hot water, wifi, etc) for cheaper around town. The one downfall is that the music on Montanita's streets is always on full volume until about 3 in the morning, even on a Monday, so take earplugs or be prepared to pay a little more for somewhere quieter down the beach.
