Woke up and checked out of the hostel in Puerto Lopez and got down to the bus station to get on a bus to Guayaquil. Remember how I said never ever ever use jipijapa bus company... Turns out they are they are the only bus company with an uninterrupted route to Guayaquil from puerto Lopez... One shitty bus ride and $8 later, got to the bus terminal in Guayaquil and got a ticket to Cuenca. The bus was the best I've been on in Ecuador. Massive spacious seats, adjustable aircon, leg rest (not just foot rests), hugely reclining seats and a toilet stop ever 2 hours. What more could you want. Well this perfect bus ride was ruined by another Ecuadorean dickhead sitting behind me who had no shirt on, was kicking my seat, opened the window when it was about 10 degrees outside, wouldn't stop talking, was singing at shouting level, woke up a baby with his singing who then started screaming and was overall just being a dickhead. Got to Cuenca, got a taxi to a hostel lonely planet recommended which was nice, had some dinner then went to bed.
