Back on the mainland after what was an amazing excursion off the coast to the Galapogas we once again swept through Guayaquil as there isn't much to see there, and when people described it to us as the Lima of Ecuador we hurriedly got on a bus the next day to Montanita.
In a display of the many and varied landscapes this little South American country has to offer we started our journey from the mega diverse volcanic islands, to the beach, before heading to ...

... my size and then I picked the pattern and asked for it to be a bit narrower than the ones on display. They had a book of patterns and it said that the pelican means 'new life and long life' and the hummingbird is a general symbol of 'nature'. I love both hummingbirds and pelicans so I think I would have chosen them even without their given meanings, but I do think these meanings were very appropriate nonetheless.

The owner told us that he could deliver the ring ...
