By the time we arrived to the hostel and the guys were already settled, it was 9:30pm. The hostel was located near the "Parque Itchimbia" and from there you can have an awesome view of the city.
When we arrived I recognized the place, well I haven't been there, but the name was part of the recommendations I had for the city, hahaha. Not because of the food, but because of the view. And yes, the view was amazing. You can see all the Old Town, the night view was breathtaking. The lights of the churches and the Basel looked so lovely! The cafe was nice, great atmosphere, so bad that the service was so bad.
Shawn was getting nervous, we wouldn't be able to arrive to the airport on time and Frank doesn't speak Spanish. Better, leave now. So I asked the waiter for our food. He said it was ready, so I told him to make it "to go". He delivered our food and was unpolite. Lisa and William stayed here. We left some money and took a fork hahaha.
Going down the hill was faster, arrived to the car and hoped we'd arrive to the airport on time. Again, no signs saying how to go to the airport or which avenue we were driving, pfffff. Anonther small city tour and finally we saw a sign, a tiny one with an airplane, can't they do bigger signs??? Nevermind, Shawn was nervous and I was eating, hehehe.
We arrived on time, 5min later we saw Frank. Hey! This wasn't his first time in the country, but was the 1st time Shawn was picking him from the airport. Ok, better start moving, so we wouldn't arrive too late to Cotacachi. While Shawn was driving and talking to Frank, I was taking a nap :P
It was 2am when we arrived back to Cotacachi. I went straight to bed. Next morning we'd visit the chicken farm and the surroundings :)
