Guayaquil Ecuador – Sometimes the wisest plan is to “stay put” until the smoke clears. The news last night showed protests in many major cities of Ecuador, and a peek now at Portoviejo news confirms that even if I find transport back to Manabi, the route might be blocked.
(After scanning headlines now at the cyber, I fear that some of my loved ones might be worried with the “State of Emergency” news… Unable to reach the emails, I am updating here….)
Aside from buying a burro – and I am tempted because the adventure would be a great one – I will enjoy this holding pattern near the airport and bus terminal until the conflict is over.
In addition to the laptop charger, I also left my paints in Portoviejo. Me thinks I should buy a few tubes and brushes and start painting the area in happy colors!
(All is calm and very quiet near the airport.)
Until next cyber visit, probably tomorrow, Z
