What can I say about today

We were told that there was a beach 5 kilometers down the road with white sand so we started there…not so white just a little lighter than we were used to. Because you cannot spend a lot of time in the ecuadorian sun when you are as incredibly white as we are, we decided to head back to our cabana and hammocks. One little detail that I find totally unbelievable is the temp at the equator. The capital of Ecuador, Quito, has a higher elevation so the day we headed to the Middle of the World, I was wearing a jacket…by the end of the day, we were in shirt sleeves.

Today, while sitting at the Pacific Ocean at the equator, we were chilled…shocking to me.

What upsets me is the number of dogs. Obviously no spay and neuter rules. Dogs everywhere – obvious mothers and puppy’s everywhere. One of the most fun things are the 5 large Dogs owned by the owners of the Hosteria Mandala who lounge on the wrap around bamboo and thatch veranda. The large black great Dane which we have christened Marmaduke sneaks into the restroom to sleep when the door is left ajar.

This trip is an incredible adventure.

  1. I guess that whole weather thing would not have occurred to me either.  I guess that is better than scalding temperatures.  That is sad about the dogs.  Amazing how different things are.Enjoy your trip.  I think that it is cool that you are posting from there!


  2. Middleoftheworld….the equated and monument where you can stand with one foot in the northern hemisphere and one foot in the southern hemisphere
