Today was mainly a travelling day. We travelled from Cuzco in Peru to Guayaqil here in Equador. We also travelled fom 2o C this morning to 32o this afternoon. We went on a short tour of this rather undistiguished city. The most interesting thing we saw was a hat factory where the traditional panama hats are made.
To everyone’s astonishment we discovered that the hat I bought last year online was manufactured at this factory. It turns out that it is one of the cheaper less distinguished ones!
Tomorrow we embark on the yacht La Pinta! Next stop Galapagos and the Origin of the Species!
