Where I stayed
Tuk Tuk drive
What I did
But the exciting part would be the facial impression of the tuktuk driver, the moment we would tell him our destination 'a la casa de la professora Ruth?' They don't really do street names here. Even postal services use PO boxes. Indeed. He looked puzzled.
Fortunately David had prepared us with the addition ' in front of the cleaning that is out of servive'. Aha. Worked. The driver's head nodded and we were in the tuktuk. Wait. How much? 50 cents. Ok. Same price as we've been told
Fortunately we were just in time to learn how to make a watermelon juice and got invited (why did we have to eat those burgers at the bus station) to a specialty of Ecuadorian fish before leaving to the beach.
A bonfire, yeah, seemed ages we had that, so what are the necessary ingredients? Wood, drinks and... marshmallows! Driinks were arranged on the way there and wood collected at the beach. Picking up the small pieces we were surprised when the boys return with half a tree. So only the marshmallows. David had some but you can never have enough, right?
Too bad they are called 'besitos' over Not hard to imagine the reaction when you go to a store and ask for kisses, especially if your a women and the seller a man. Haha. Got them and back to the fire here we were chatting and enjoying until late in the night enjoying the good company and th salsa music from the beach hut behind us...
Early riser's and shine'rs as we are we joined Ash for a small while and then there was time to say goodbye
Lovely it was but us stupidos forgot that it was Sunday. Of course all the Ecuadorians were off too! However,we really enjoyed the beach and the view but then decided that there is nothing as great as Las Tunas - and thus were heading back to 'our' beach early afternoon.
'Home sweet home'
