It wasn't sunny, which was good, so I wouldn't feel I was missing any tan opportunity, hahaha. We started our way before 10am. The girl at the rental place gave us a map, but according to Shawn we wouldn't need it. Just in case I decided to bring it with us ;)
Manta is growing. We were staying just in the center of the city, but there is a lot of construction going in on.
The landscape leaving Manta wasn't that nice. It looked so... desert... Dr. Seuss' trees, dust... nothing else... and having a gray sky wasn't that helpful either, but at least the view of the ocean was nice. Shawn and me were making fun about the strange work schedules in Ecuador. Restaurants closed on Sunday - when most people go out for lunch or dinner. Offices opening late and closing early. So it surprised us to find people working on the road on a Sunday morning! Wow! Well, it explains why Manta has nice roads, good for them!
