Mar 27, 2009
We had nothing in particular planned for Manta (the nearest coastal port to Quito, Ecuador). Jim was feeling under the weather so we only took time to visit a craft market to see if we could find more 'essentials' and then headed back to the ship for a quiet afternoon away from the hot sun. I think the most exciting thing we did all day was to watch frozen tuna being unloaded from a Chinese ship docked beside our ship. I know, I know, it sounds like we need to get a life but it really was fun watching the antics of the chaps unloading the tuna.
