Today we went to Guayaquil with Wendy and Neil. Josue, the person who picked us up at the airport drove us. First we stopped at an orchid farm and Wendy bought two orchids.
Then Wendy and Neil had to go to get their passports renewed. While they were in there, we took pictures in front of McDonald’s. (That’s for you, Bonnie). We didn’t get to go there, but we will at a later trip.
Then we went to Kiwi, a store like Home Depot, to get a few things. We got a base for our water bottle, beach chair, mint plant, soil and a container, distilled water for my sleep machine (CPAP) and most important a cart to carry our groceries from the mall. Then we went to lunch at a Chinese buffet. Leo always loves buffets. I had ceviche, Ecuadorian meat, an Ecuadorian soup and Shrimp. I didn’t eat the Chinese. Then we went to the Malecon in Guayaquil that overlooks the river.
Next we went to the meat store. I bought hot sausage, Colombian sausage, and Mexican Hamburgers.
Then we went to the Mega Maxi and I got a beach towel and Leo got sandals. Then we headed home. It’ about an hour ride. We were tired again. We had planned to go out to dinner, but we said we’d stay in.
Below are pictures of Guayaquil:
