Manta, Ecuador
Today a fishing boat docked next to us and deposited 1600 tons of tuna onto the dock freezers, but not before giving some to our ship for the dinning room. The captain of our ship said that the captain of the fishing boat had immigrated from Italy and now owns four fishing boats. The ship arrived at 5AM and the people going to Machu Picchu left to catch an early flight. we awoke about 8 had breakfast in the Lido and visited the downtown to buy a few items including sun glasses. This city is about 500 years old and has a long Inca history in the past, but now they are a big tuna fishing center. There are multiple fishing boats in the enclosed harbor and I tried to get a few pictures.We visited the city very quickly and bought sun glasses for both of us since we forgot ours at home, what a hassel my spanish is terrible and the word for sun glasses is Grafa de solar, but so few places had them. we left for Peru late in the day and have another formal night today.
