Are ship is currently located in a very bad area of guayadil. So in order to get out of the port one most go through extremely high security. So even though we were docked at 7ish we weren’t allowed off the ship till 10. and once we got off we weren’t allowed to walk anywhere, so we had to wait 30 minutes for the shuttle to come by to take us 3 ft away. Once we finally made it into town we did some walking around the city. Stopped in a few stores, and went into an outside restaurant. They served us the lunch of the day which consisted of crb soup, chicken and rice, desert and jucie, for the very high prive of $1.50 …..yea!! Pretty freaking amazing when we fed 5 people for less then $8.
After our very fancy lunch we went to the city’s river walk. The river walk is a newly developed area of guayadil , there is fountains and stairs that lead to a platform so that people can have a view of the entire city. Along the walkway of the riverwalk there was an art festival going on and so we managed to take lot of pictures of people making the most amazing art work.
After out time in the city we went back to the ship. I had my media reception, which was fun. The city brought dancers to the reception and performed a show for us.
After 2 hours of smiling and socializing we went to eat, and began getting ready for going out at night. I had an early morning flight to quito, and adam was going to the Galapagos so we didn’t stay out to late. We went to this bar , where half the scholarship was, and I had a cucaracho. This amazing shot that was on fire!! And you have to take it with a straw, very very fun!
