We needed cash. The nearest ATM machine was not so conveniently located in the next town, San Vicente about twenty minutes away. Had we had our own mode of transportation, this wouldn’t have been a problem. Instead, we had to wait by the side of the road for a half hour or so for a passing bus. I thought San Vicente would offer more photo opportunities (which is why I agreed to go with Andrew), but it seems as though the entire town is under construction. You may think that I’m exaggerating- but I assure you, I’m not. I felt a bit weird with my camera out, so quickly put it away after a few blocks, cutting the day in a minute down to a day in 50-ish seconds. Because we also needed some Ecuador gear for the big World Cup qualifier on Friday, we headed even further to the next town, Bahia. Bahia didn’t seem to be under construction, but it didn’t seem to offer a lot of opportunities either- at least ones that I was willing to risk ownership of my camera for. We picked up a jersey for Andrew, a headband for myself, and a cape (yep, a cape) for our new friend Tom for the big game tomorrow and headed back to Sundown to study some more Spanish.
