Jama Ecuador (Manabi Province)
Only one street back from the center of town, Hostal Ciragan provides a quiet respite – unless there’s an all-night fiesta nearby!
Mid-morning on Saturday, I walked down the quiet street near Ciragan and pondered my good fortune to have my health, happiness, and many talents to keep me happy; I also felt lucky to have a large support system of people who care about me. I noted wild tobacco in bloom near the sidewalk, and then I noted always-smiling Ramon painting the sign to the hostal!
I remembered the WordPress Street Life Challenge and enjoyed photographing my friend while documenting the the unhurried pace of the quiet street! The bright-yellow alamanda provided a touch of eye candy for flower lovers like me!
A quiet scene like this definitely makes one feel relaxed and unhurried! Does this help explain why my blood pressure is 110 over 65/70 and my pulse around 50?!
