Day 1b Touring Guayaquil, Ecuador South America
Toured the city of Guayaquil, Ecuador today. Had the opportunity to visit land iguana park, 444 steps up to a lighthouse (and then 50 steps up into the light house), river promenade park/walk, fish and fruit market, flower market, open market and shops, and had dinner at local restaurant that was named after the city. With only about 4 hrs of sleep the night before - not too bad. Anyways... flying to the Galapagos in the morning... ~ 1 1/2 hour trip.
Fish Market Left Overs - Used as Bait for Next Day
Housing in Guayaquil
Islands of Water Hyacinths from the main land drift out to see. Told similar patches of debris may have helped ancestors of the Galapagos get to the islands millions of years ago.
Lizards hanging out with the pigeons... different I must say
