On Sunday we relax in the Airbnb with some coffee and tea then take a taxi to Cafe San Sebas on Parque San Sebastián. During our 10 minute ride it begins pouring rain the drops off to a pleasant shower. We dash from the taxi to the restaurant and are pleased to find a table for two on the second floor. The breakfast is very good and during our meal the rain slows to a light sputter.
We leave Cafe San Sebas, setting the Mercado de Artesianes Rotary as our destination. It’s a 21 minute walk according to Google Maps. The streets are glistening due to the rain and are quiet due to the timing, a late Sunday morning. It’s a perfect time for a stroll.
Wednesday and Thursday are travel days. Javier picks us up on Wednesday at 9 am in his taxi. We discuss the mudslides that have been occurring on the highway through the Cajas and agree to take the longer route to the north, which makes it a 4.5-5 hour drive to Guayaquil. We spend the night at the Courtyard hotel and the next morning the hotel transports us to the airport. We arrive back at our US home at midnight after connecting through Miami. A long day.
Our bed feels soooo good!
