Guayaquil one more day

Is it my imagination, or is this statue of Bolivar and San Martin a little homo-erotic?

Slept past 8:00. ("Lazy bones!")

This morning I'm working on my blog, with my computer hanging out the fifth floor window. I'm picking up a wireless signal from "Unipark Hotel" lobby, about 150 yards away. One slip, and the notebook's history. (But I've already done this for hours.)

Actually, I developed the routine of working off-line, then going to the window to log in and post entries! Occasionally, even former white-collar desk-jockeys learn how to adapt.

Received an e-mail from "Raul", the gentleman from whom I purchased insurance after crossing into Belize. He has been following my travels. I learned that insurance is just a job to put bread on the table. His real passion is art, and he hopes to open a studio soon.


After packing up, decided I wasn't quite ready to leave. "I'll chill out for one more day in Guayaquil." Yesterday had been such an absolute "black hole" and I wanted to take some photos after all. Played the tourist, wandering the downtown waterfront parks and shopping areas of the Malecón.

Yes, it's your imagination. Like I said, YOUR imagination.
