We moved to Crucita fron Playas on Friday. Josue the Ecadorian guy that we have been friendly with drove us with his truck piled high. It is amazing how fast you accumulate “stuff”.
We hit the road at 9 o’clock. Remember how I said the bus wasn’t better. I take that back!! Seriously folks I was petrified for 5 hours. Crazily I was happy we were going the coastal route, which was different from the bus route we took previously. Good grief, we were on mountains most of the trip, so the roads twisted and turned. I took pictures of the signs to show you.
There were literally 100’s of these. To make matters worse, Josue took these curves at break neck speeds. I used the Lord’s name in vain numerous times, said sh–, a few times, and said f— a few times. I WAS SCARED!!!! Now that was not all, he passed cars in these mountains and I promise you we made it in by the skin of our teeth often! In the middle of a small town he passed a car with a parked truck taking up most of the other lane. I still don’t know how we made it. This ride was not fun. Back to a vehicle bigger than most–a bus!!
We got here about 2 o’clock. Fernando, the house caretaker, let us in and gave us numerous instructions. Leo and I could not believe we are living in this house. We sat on the porch overlooking the water and were in awe at the view. Leo and I unpacked quite a bit. We ate leftover lunch and soup for dinner. I went to bed at 9 o’clock. The sound of the waves were delightful for sleeping. We got up at 6 o’clock, because we had to go next door at 9 o’clock to make palm baskets. This is beginning another busy new town.
