Dear Ecuador

I watched movies today! It was surprisingly fun. They’re all dubbed to Spanish, but with English text. I watched a whole bunch of movies, both actions and comedies. I laughed! I did get the time

I watched movies today! It was surprisingly fun. They’re all dubbed to Spanish, but with English text. I watched a whole bunch of movies, both actions and comedies. I laughed! I did get the time for some random shots though:

Random Peru shot 1.

Random Peru shot 2.

Random Peru shot 3.

Then we came to the boarder. Long queues. Questions in Spanglish that I tried to answer. I think I got a 90 days visa.

I spent my last Peruvian money on buying ice creams, one with bananas and one sandwich. When I came to the second one, the sandwich, it was already melting, although the taste was good. So I spent the very last money on another sandwich. It was also melting. I guess those freezes aren’t perfect :p

It’s funny how green life became as soon as we passed the border! It’s like they drew the border based on geography: Green: Ecuador, Brown: Peru.

Cemetery.

The bus station in Guayaquil was huge. Finding a proper road out of there took ages. I found some internet on the other side of the highway. It took a while to get an Uber, but once it came, I got so relaxed.

I’m coming home to the Arias family! Here they live, three generations (the third generation is too bored to sit by the table of course :)). We’re eating crab!

Now, I would never “choose a favourite” in a family like this. That’d be terribly impolite. You never know who has made all the food, who paid for it, who cleaned the floor, who wrote the wifi login on a convenient piece of paper etc.

But if anyone would point a gun at my head, and told me “choose your favourite in this family now or I’ll shoot you!” then I’d have to pick Luna, the lady in the picture above. She is one out of three lovely cats, and she LOVED me. Maybe because of all the crab I had on my fingers, or maybe just because I gave her 10% of the attention she deserved, which is a lot.
