So the past few days I've been in a great town called Canoa, Ecuador. It's right on the beach, and the hostel is costing around $10 per night. I'm enjoying just sitting on the beach and exploring. The streets are all even sand! Yesterday I tried surfing and managed to stand up a couple times. I may try again today. I'll upload a couple more pictures of the town here soon for you all to see. I would definitely come back here for a vacation. Either tomorrow or Tuesday we are going to head out to Manta, Ecuador and then back in to Quito, and off to a town called Banos (just a couple hours south of Quito). If we can go directly to Banos from Manta, then we won't go via Quito. Alot of it depends on if we will fly or take a bus. A bus is about 8 hours back to Quito, and a flight is less than an hour, and costs around $45 one-way. They say that flights within Ecuador are really cheap, so we'll see! After that, it looks like we will head south to Vilcabamba and Cuenca, Ecuador, and then cross the border into Peru, but those plans aren't anything set in stone yet. I hope you all are doing well and I will write more soon!
