The boat races were supposed to start at 10:00 AM. Another couple came to go with Wendy, Neil and us. We didn’t see any sign of the races, so we sat around and talked awhile and decided this was Ecuador, who knows when they will really start. Doris, one of the new people we met went off on her motorcycle to find out the scoop. She came back and said it may start about 2:00. Leo and I decided we would go to the Mall to get our phone set up and buy more groceries and supplies. We did get the phone set.
Then we went into the supermarket to buy some more things. We walked back with the groceries in a canvas bag perched on Leo’s head again. We ate lunch, rested, and then went to watch the races. The beaches were very full of families from Guayaquil. We didn’t really know what was going on except that we saw shrimp boats going very fast, looking like they were going to crash into each other. Later the balsa sail boats came out. It was fun.

Now were home resting. Boy, I need it!
