Shawn had friends here and one of them took care of our reservations, so sweet of him! Before going to the hotel, he'd show me a bit of the city.
Ok, before going back to the hotel, we'd stop at the supermarket to get some other stuff we might need for the pisco sours. Well, we'd need passion fruit if he wanted me to make passion fruit sour! No complains at all, hahaha. It's always interesting going to a market, but a supermarket worked fine too, hahaha. I saw new fruits, yay!
Finally we drove back to the hotel. It was very nice and comfortable.
Ok, now it was time to make this pisco sours. Well, time for a confession. I like pisco sours a lot, but I've never made them, well until now, hahaha. Shawn wanted me to start preparing the pisco sours asap, hahaha. "Ok, Shawn, if you want pisco sours, pls start squeezing limes." hehehe. Ok, round #1 of Pisco Sours was ready! yay! We toasted to new friends and moved to the living room to enjoy our cocktails :)
Don't want to sound spoiled, but they were very tasty, hahaha! Roger was a chef and when we told him that there was a Gastronomic Festival in Puerto Cayo he was so glad and started to think about how to go there, hahaha.
Roger fixed some sandwiches, but guys were thinking about dinner, hahaha. I didn't eat the sandwiches and could have something to eat. So, we decided to go to a restaurant nearby and grab a bite. OMG! It was Sunday and everything was closed, well almost everything. After walking for a while we saw one open! It was a bbq place, but in Ecuadorian style, hehehe. We got rice and lentils and meat. I chose chicken, Shawn got beef and Roger pork. And of course a beer to drink! Just to keep on toasting, hehehe.
We were the last customers and left the place around 10:30pm.
