there should we go!
In order to go to Canoa - our next destination - we had to go first to Bahia de Caraquez in order to take the ferry and cross the river. But we didn't know how to go to Bahia, mmm. Shawn asked to his friends and they told him, that would be easy and wouldn't take long. Just drive straight and follow the signs. Well, that sounds simple, but... there are almost no signs in Ecuador!!!! That was what really surprised me. There weren't many signs indicating directions, mmm. Ok, Shawn had a map, so we'd do it, hope so...

The 4 of us were so excited about the idea of Canoa, enjoying the beach and sun, that the driving idea didn't seem to be bad at all. The road until Manta has been good, and when we went closer to Manta it became really smooth.

So we were hoping the road from Manta to Crucita would be similar, but it wasn't so... Manta is a big destination, but Crucita is not like that, so the roads there weren't that good. In some parts they were a bit bumpy, but Shawn warned me to wait until we start driving to highlands in a couple of days, OMG!

In our way we saw many trees that looked like Dr. Seuss' trees, hahaha. We were just chatting and I noticed that I wasn't the only crazy one taking lots of pics. So did Lisa, yay!!! Girl power!!!

Which one was the name of the town, we were supposed to pass and turn in some direction? Wasn't that "Crucita"? Yes, it was. Well, we were finally there. Now let's go to find some people to ask about how to get to our next destination. I will never forget the name of the 2nd town: "Charapoto"
