ECUADOR:   Frizztext at Flickrcomments asked us to share a story or a short reflection tagged with the letter “L.”    I’m quite behind on posts, and hope to catch up over the next few days.  This gives me an excuse to formally introduce you to a sleepy little beach community a few kilometers away (from where I live) called La Division.

La Division is the dividing point between El Matal and Don Juan (The municipality’s own dump trucks left their tracks as they carried away load after load of sand.)

UGH! Do you think that this is legal?  The muni moved from mangrove destruction to a new desecration.  Poor little La Division!

Located between the fishing villages of El Matal and Don Juan,   La Division basks in a sweet isolation.    Boasting one tiny tienda/soda and a handful of houses, it is one of my favorite places to visit in the area.

Located in the middle of those long stretches of beach sits La Division.

Don’t let the darkness spook you! Step inside and leave all stress behind!

Kick back and enjoy a hammock!

Time out before moving on!

About five years ago, I rented a cabana at La Division and developed a deep love for the people who live there.  Meet always-happy Deier.

Thank you for visiting this petite pueblito!   Come back soon, OK?
